I have a mole on my labia that I first noticed about 4 years ago. I have my gynecologist look at it during my yearly exams, and she has always said it looks fine. Two days ago I noticed it had developed a black spot that I don’t remember seeing before. I'm concerned about the shape/border as well. I have no other symptoms like itching, bleeding, pain, etc. I have never been diagnosed with HPV or had an abnormal pap result. I know vulvar melanoma is rare, but the mole definitely looks suspicious to me. Does anyone know if this is what vulvar melanoma looks like? Is there something else it could be?
I do have an appointment with my PCP next week to see if he thinks I should go to a dermatologist, but in the meantime I can’t stop thinking about it! Everything I have researched says the prognosis for vulvar cancer is poor, and I’m only 26 years old.
Please, please offer any thoughts you have on this!!
