Possible Vulvar/Perineium precancerous condition

Ladies,

It has been a while since I have been on here. I had my hyster in Dec. of 1999. You all were great help and support to me then. Now that I am possibly faced with this 'precancerous' condition I again turn to you all for encouragment and support. The Lord and my husband were first on the list but you all came in a close 3rd!

Here goes this journey of a possible precancerous condition of the vulvar/perineium. I have had a itch for over a year now and one Dr told me it was a hemmroid. Gave me some cream and sent me home. Well Wednesday I went in for a yearly exam, (we have moved from Tx to NC so I was seeing a new Dr). I asked him about the itching and if he could 'look it over while he was down there". He saw the area, it is a white patchy area on the right side only, slightly inflamed. He said it could be dermatitis but since it was only on one side and inflamed he wanted me to have a biopsy. We sat it up for the next day. He at first had told me that he would take a couple of 'scrapping' to send off and no stitches. Once we got there and he was concentrating on the area with a light and all he said it was bigger than he thoguht for and he took 2- 4mm chunks and sent them off for testing. Due to the size each spot required 2 stitches. (Talking about a pain in the butt!). All this is an an area called the vulva/perineium area. It is between the vagina and anus. I am reading all I can find about this on the internet. **Anyone hear ever been diagnoised with this?***
Please reply if you have been. I would love to chat with you. We now ha ve to wait 5-7 days for the biopsy results to come back The waiting is the hard part huh?

**I have also found out that this is a area of our bodies that we ALL should be chekcing monthly just as we are to check our breasts. PLEASE PLEASE do a self test on yourself and tell others about this. ALl you need to do to 'test' yourself is to look with a mirror at th is area. Make a mental note of what it looks like NOW, use this as your baseline, then check yourlsef from now on monthly. Should you ever note by sight or feeling (itching, burning, bumps,...) of anything different tell your Dr. immeidately!!!!!

Blessings to you all,
LaQuita

Possible Vulvar/Perineium precancerous condition

Dear LaQuita,
I hope it just turns out to be a benign treatable condition. Most of these things usually do. I know how hard waiting for the results can be. It's good to research on the internet, but there's a lot of scary things too. hope you get good news.

Possible Vulvar/Perineium precancerous condition

(((LaQuita)))

I'm sorry you are having this worry now. I had abnormal cells removed from my vaginal wall right at the vaginal entrance at the time of my LEEP and then again with my TAH. As a result of that, my doc started doing very thorough exams of vulva/perineum/vaginal wall with the colpscope and extra scrapings are always sent from that area when I have my PAP's as well as from the vaginal cuff.

A few months after my surgery I developed two new bumps on my perineum. Out of sheer terror I had them biopsied, but they were benign. It hurt, though! Then at my 12-month follow-up I had another abnormal PAP which later resolved itself. Hopefully, all of this will also turn out OK for you. We have had a couple of other women who have had areas of abnormal cells removed from their vulvas. It's rare, but it does happen.

I know the waiting is sheer torture! I will keep you in my thoughts and 'ers. Please come back and let us know what you find out!
