Associated Genetic Biomarkers

Overview

NCI Definition: A carcinoma arising from the vulva. It usually affects elderly women but has been observed in premenopausal women as well. The most frequently seen histologic type is squamous cell carcinoma. The most common site of involvement is the labia majora. In many cases, the development of vulvar cancer is preceded by condyloma or squamous dysplasia. [1]
