About this booklet

The booklet explains what vulval cancer is, how it is usually diagnosed and treated, and how you might want to manage any side effects. We hope it gives you an idea of what to expect and offers some helpful tips.

We hope it helps you deal with some of the questions or feelings you may have. We cannot give advice about the best treatment for you. You should talk to your doctor, who knows your medical history.

How we can help

If you have cancer, you may be able to get a Macmillan Grant to help with the extra costs of cancer. Find out who can apply and how to access our grants.

Welfare rights advice and tools

There are lots of benefits that could help you after a cancer diagnosis, but the system can be confusing. Our Welfare Rights Advisors are here to help.
