Mayo Clinic and Drugs.com offer illustrations of vulvar carcinoma on their official websites, and Dermnet features a photograph of basal cell carcinoma of the vulva. Vulvar cancer usually affects the outer vaginal lips, but it can also affect the inner vaginal lips, the vaginal glands and the clitoris, states WebMD.
Signs and symptoms of vulvar cancer include a growth on the vulva, persistent itching in the vulvar area, tenderness or pain, and abnormal bleeding unrelated to menstruation, according to Drugs.com. The most common types of vulvar cancer are vulvar melanoma and vulvar squamous cell carcinoma. Treatments include surgical removal of the cancer, radiation therapy and chemotherapy.
