I have had LS for several years. My gyn has had me using a steroid cream and a estrogen cream alternately at night. Up to this point I haven't had a biopsy. Yesterday she said s little spot was a little larger this time. She want to do the biopsy in 2 weeks. So scared especially about this turning cancerous. Any good thoughts to make me feel better? Thank you .

    Don't be nervous..it's good to get the Biopsy..the white spots are just a part of the journey.. all of us have to keep in mind monitoring and being proactive in or health down there..I ask my Dr. If I ever get to the point where it's cancer is it curable? She said 100% so I keep that in my mind and don't let anything stay around for long..

    Hello Martha, Don't worry about having a biopsy it is not as bad as you would think. As regards the results the likelyhood of it being something bad isn't high, but it is best to have it checked, better to find out early should it be a problem.

    My Gyni told me straight away that all looked fine and that he was sure that the results would confirm this which they did. Try to be positive, but let us know how it goes. Good luck.

      Thank you so much. It helps to “talk” to someone that’s been thru this. My appt is June 6 I’ll let you know what it shows.
