Stage Ia Vulvar Cancer: Disease Bioinformatics

Vulvar Cancer originates on the outer surface of the female genetalia as the vulva is defined as the area of skin that surrounds the urethra, vagina, clitoris, and labia. Vulvar cancer typically begins as an itchy sore. There are two types of vulvar cancer: vulvar squamous cell carcinoma and vulvar melanoma. Vulvar cancer affects women of any age, though most commonly diagnosed in older women. Risks include being exposed to human papillomavirus (HPV), smoking, being infect with HIV, and having lichen sclerosus. Treatments include removing the cancer and a margin of healthy tissue, partial vulvectomy, radical vulvectomy, extensive surgeries for advanced cancers, radiation, chemotherapy, lymph node removal, and reconstructive surgeries. Stage I cancer is defined as the cancer is in the vulva or perineum but has not spread to distant sites, organs, or lymph nodes. Stage I vulvar cancer can be divided into IA and 1B. In IA, the tumors are less than 2 cm and have grown no deeper than 1 mm. In stage IB, the tumors are larger than 2 cm and have grown deeper than 1 mm.
