  • mucosa
  • Multiple endocrine neoplasia that is similar to MEN II but in which there are marked facial aberrations with neuromas of the conjunctiva, labial mucosa, tongue, larynx, and gastric intestinal tract. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • perianal
  • Women were consented for HPV detection and genotyping collected by a combined vulvar/vaginal/perianal (VVP) sweep swab and a separate PreservCyt endocervical sample collected during Pap cytology screening. (springer.com)
  • Vulva
  • a tumor involving both the vulva and the vagina should be considered vulvar cancer. (medscape.com)
  • Preliminary studies have been done in certain areas like vulva and cervical neoplasm, intraperitoneal ovarian metastasis and some begin diseases like endometriosis and menorrhagia. (gfmer.ch)
  • Vulvar cancer is a rare disease in which malignant (cancer) cells form in the tissues of the vulva. (roswellpark.org)
  • Tests that examine the vulva are used to detect (find) and diagnose vulvar cancer. (roswellpark.org)
  • After vulvar cancer has been diagnosed, tests are done to find out if cancer cells have spread within the vulva or to other parts of the body. (roswellpark.org)
  • excision
  • Because of the potential for occult invasion, wide local excision should be performed if cancer is suspected, even if biopsies show vulvar HSIL. (acog.org)
  • When occult invasion is not a concern, vulvar HSIL (VIN usual type) can be treated with excision, laser ablation, or topical imiquimod (off-label use). (acog.org)
  • anogenital
  • Major risk groups are males who have sex with other males (MSM), patients with immunesuppression of diverse origin, patients with a previous history of anogenital condylomas, and women with vaginal, vulvar or cervical dysplasia. (isciii.es)

  • Surgical
  • Today, with vaginal reconstruction and continent vesicostomy, the procedure is accepted as a surgical treatment in selected cases. (medscape.com)
  • detection
  • There are no screening strategies for the prevention of vulvar cancer through early detection of vulvar HSIL (VIN usual type). (acog.org)
  • Because the 5-year survival rate of treated early stage vaginal cancer is significantly higher than that of vaginal cancer in the advanced stages, early detection is key to improving treatment outcomes. (medscape.com)
