Vulva

Vulvar carcinoma is a rare neoplasm and represents 4% of all gynaecological tumours.

It is more common in women over the age of 50 although cases of illness are also increasing in women aged  40 and younger. 

The most common histological type of vulvar tumor is squamous cell carcinoma which consists of about 90% of diagnoses, followed by melanoma.

In respect of vulvar disease, electrochemotherapy can be useful in the following indications:
- Recurrences from squamous cell carcinoma
- Melanoma metastasis
- Paget's disease.

We would advise you to consult your doctor to find out if electrochemotherapy can help you.

The technology that can be used to treat vulvar disease is Cliniporator®.
