In October of 2008 i went to my doctor for a growth on the side of my clitoris, ans some discoloration on the labia minora.After a quick glance, my doctor said that it is a pimple, and it will go away on its own.No mention of the discoloration,and nothing was said about home treatment, or followup.

Earlier this month i went back,to a different doctor, and now after many tests, exams, and biopsies, i have been diagnosed with stage 1 vulvar cancer.

Next month i have t have a partial vulvectomy,and i am only 23 years old, with a husband and a little girl.

FYI, it wasn't a pimple.
