Abstract Correct and rapid diagnosis of skin tumours often requires biopsy and histopathological examination to differentiate benign lesions such as seborrhoeic keratoses or melanocytic naevi from premalignant and malignant lesions such as malignant melanoma. Particularly, to the untrained eye, any benign skin tumour—pigmented or nonpigmented—is easily mistaken for a malignant lesion. Qualified clinical evaluation is paramount in order to reduce the frequency of unwarranted skin biopsies. Herein, the most common benign, premalignant, and malignant vulvar skin tumours are reviewed. Introduction A variety of vulvar tumours are seen in daily clinical practice and the vast majority are benign. However, correct and rapid diagnosis often requires biopsy and histopathological examination in order to differentiate benign lesions such as seborrhoeic keratoses or melanocytic naevi from premalignant and malignant lesions such as malignant melanoma.
Note that the photographic work is already done and I have already created a first draft manuscript of the book below , so the funds are just to get the first batch printed, not to pay for me to do the whole project.
Support this project to support grassroots creativity! Here is a rough first draft : The final will be high quality, square, much larger, hardcover etc.
Everybody wins! The project wins because the books will get printed and distributed. Effectively you are simply pre-ordering your book! Support this project to support winning : You are helping to remove the taboo around vaginas!
Besides getting your actual reward of the book, you will also get the reward of knowing you have contributed to the destigmatisation of vaginas and perhaps helped save some girls from having a body image issues in the future and eased some women's body image issues in the present. Support this project to make the world a better place!
Share, share, share! Please help spread the word!
Bloggers, journalists, radio and TV hosts, social commentators, etc. Support this project by sharing it with the world : And most importantly, thank you to all the amazing women who have come forward to participate in this project.
None of this would have been possible without them, and now this next phase will not be possible without you! Who will be able to resist leafing through the gorgeous, diverse photos and reading the fascinating stories, poems and messages from each woman? Because you know your best friend will want one too!

Abstract Vulvar melanoma is the second most common vulvar cancer.
Patients with vulvar melanoma usually present with the disease at a late stage and have a poor prognosis. The prognostic predictors reported in the literature are not unequivocal and the role of lichen sclerosus and c-KIT mutations in the aetiology of vulvar melanoma is unclear. Breslow staging currently seems to be the most adequate predictor of prognosis.
Our series of 33 patients fitted the expected clinical profile of older women: delayed presentation, high stage, limited response to treatment and poor prognosis. We identified 3 patients 9.
No patient had vulvar nevi. Lichen sclerosus may be associated with vulvar melanoma.
Keywords: vulvar melanoma, prognostic predictors, risk factors, c-KIT, lichen sclerosus Introduction Vulvar melanoma is the second most common vulvar cancer with an incidence of 0. This is unlike cutaneous melanomas where, as a result of increased public and clinical awareness, many patients are now diagnosed at an early stage.
The aetiology of vulvar melanoma is poorly understood but is believed to arise de novo, that is, to develop from the malignant transformation of a single junctional melanocyte in situ 4.
A genetic basis is suspected, which may explain why caucasions have a 3-fold higher incidence rate than individuals of African descent 11 and why individuals of African descent have a 2-fold shorter median survival than caucasions Activating c-KIT mutations have been found in patients with vulvar melanoma 13 ,
