Alternative Title
Vulval cancer is a rare gynaecological malignancy. Though it has got excellent prognosis if diagnosed and treated early, but in most instances, women present late with advanced disease as they are too uncomfortable to discuss it with their doctors. Advanced vulval cancer is difficult to treat, has got poor prognosis and the treatment itself can cause morbidity and mortality. The authors describe three cases of isolated vulval cancer in a gynaecology centre in south Wales that had late presentation due to embarrassment despite noticing the lesion for long time and a brief review of the literature on its prevalence, clinical presentation, investigation and best management.
