I was diagnosed with cancer of the cervix when I was 25 years old after I had had two premature babies at 32 weeks each. I had to have a hysterectomy. Now 26 years later I have been diagnosed with cancer of the vulva and had 3 laser treatments, then a partial vulvectomy and further laser treatment. I have been told that this is a very slow growing cancer but I would like to know who it would be detected if it has spread by the gynae/oncologist when he does not do blood tests?
