Vulval surgery: radical partial vulvectomy (side) - image description

This diagram shows the vulva, and it’s labelled with the parts removed by a radical partial vulvectomy for cancer on the side of the vulva. This diagram uses the left side of the vulva as an example, and there is a dotted line around the area that will be removed by the operation. This area includes all of the left inner lip and outer lip, and the left side of the perineum. There is also a dotted line around the lymph nodes on the left side, indicating that these will also be removed in this operation.
