    Hi nikkita

    I'm only 23 too I was diagnosed with Ls on my sides when I was about 7 years old no one ever told my mother it can develop in other places! I went to my gum clinic in Monday after feel like I would pull or tear during sex and I told him about my ls on my sides too he says he suspects it and has given me eumovate cream I've Gotta go back and see him in 3 weeks too! It's so scary and I think I've scared myself reading and looking at pictures 😣

    Hope your appointment goes ok! Xx

      Sorry to hear.. I know, it's so scary. I terrified myself reading it all too.. I think I'm more scared that either it can develope into something else, or that my daughter may also get it.. That's what I actually thought at first too, that I tore during sex..  But it kept getting worse and my doctor kept turning me away saying I'm over reacting.. I researched it and went back as it started to become more painful and I couldn't handle it.. I told them that I know what it is and I'm not leaving until they check.. They did and it turned out that I was right.. And sent me straight to the hospital.. The tarring was so bad. They gave me a cream as well.. Scary knowing I have to use it for the rest of my life n have to go to appointment for the rest of my life to make sure it hasn't gotten worse to devolved the cancer.. This appointment went well, they said that the hospital was really happy with how it has healed and want to see me again in March. It's still sinking in as I not long found out what it was but so happy that now that I know, I'm getting the right treatment.. Hope your appointment goes well x

      He said that the hospital had gotten hold of him and that they are very please with the results of the cream and how well the tarring had started to heal, I have to go back to the hospital in March for the 6 month check up to see if it has devolped the cancer or if it flared up.. but only need to see my gp if I have a flare up or run out of cream, so all in all good news for now 👍🏻
