Guidelines for the Diagnosis and Management of Vulval Carcinoma
This document covers all invasive vulval cancers of any histological type.
Vulval cancer is a disease affecting predominantly elderly women and is uncommon below the age of 50 years. Comorbidities also increase with age which may prove challenging when planning management.
As there will be occasions when clinical history and examination alone cannot exclude cancer or preinvasive disease, this document addresses issues of referral for investigation and confirmation, diagnostic procedures and management. The questions of follow-up and outcome assessment are also addressed.
