You’ve been diagnosed with vulvar cancer – now, what happens next? You probably have what seems like a million questions running through your mind about what treatments you will have, what your prognosis will be and what your life will look like as you go through treatment. After receiving a vulvar cancer diagnosis, it is important to take the time to process your emotions as they come. Surround yourself with supportive friends and family to lean on during this difficult time, and don’t be afraid to explore counseling options, too.
Another step you should take upon being diagnosed with vulvar cancer is to educate yourself on your malignancy. Learning about your cancer and the methods used to treat it can help alleviate some of the initial anxiety you may be feeling. Moffitt Cancer Center is committed to giving vulvar cancer patients the information they need, which is why we have compiled the following articles relating to vulvar cancer FAQs as reliable sources of information:
- Can HPV cause vulvar cancer?
- Do different types of vulvar cancer have different symptoms?
- How do you get tested for vulvar cancer?
