Vulvar cancer is an abnormal growth of malignant cancerous cells in the vulva. The vulva is defined as the external female genitalia and includes the labia majora outer lips of labia , labia minora inner lips , clitoris, mons pubis, vestibule, or entryway, of the vagina, and the perineum area between vulva and anus. The vulva is essentially epithelial skin; therefore the main tumor types that affect the vulva are skin-related cancers. As with vaginal squamous cell carcinomas, vulvar squamous cell cancers are slow-growing and usually develop from "precancerous", pre-invasive areas called vulvar intraepithelial neoplasia VIN. There are two subtypes of squamous cell vulvar cancer.
Most women with vulvar intraepithelial neoplasia VIN have no symptoms at all. When a woman with VIN does have a symptom, it is most often itching that does not go away or get better. An area of VIN may look different from normal vulvar skin. It is often thicker and lighter than the normal skin around it.
