About vulva cancer

The vulva is the name given to all the visible sex organs. It is made up of:

  • 2 thin, delicate folds of skin called the labia minora
  • 2 large, hair-covered folds called the labia majora, which surround the labia minora.

Cancer that starts in any area of the vulva is called vulval cancer.
