After your treatment has finished, you will have regular check-ups with your cancer doctor or nurse. Your appointments will usually be every few months at first. Later they may only be once a year.
You can talk to your doctor or nurse about any problems or worries at these check-ups. But if you notice any new symptoms or have any problems between appointments, contact your doctor or nurse for advice.
If you had vulval lichen sclerosus (VLS) or lichen planus (LP) before vulval cancer, you should continue to see your specialist for those conditions too. After cancer treatment, you may still need ongoing treatment for the skin. Your specialist will advise you about this.
Many people find that they get quite anxious before their appointments. You may worry about the cancer coming back. This is natural. It can help to get support from family, friends or your special-ist nurse. Or you can speak to our cancer support specialists on 0808 808 00 00. Some other organisations also offer support to people affected by cancer of the vulva.
