I’m currently going through a lichen scerious scare.
Not really LS, more like vulvar cancer.
I have a white part of skin on my inner vulva. In between both laboria skin. TMI sorry.
It’s not raised, it’s literally the skin itself as if it changed color to white.
TERRIFIED and can’t stop crying. I have convinced myself it’s bad and can’t stop comparing it to vulvar cancer.
I booked a OBGYN appointment but it’s until 3rd week of October. like wtf?? What if it is bad news, that’s so far away Plz help people :(

Ket us just say it is lichen scerious. Nothing to say it will turn into cancer. That is very rare with that condition. Plus the condition can be easily treated and clears up quickly enough. Is a common enough condition. I know young teens or women going through the menopause are more likely to get it. Fact that your appointment is so far away shows you exactly how serious they think the condition is. if they thought there was any danger involved they would have had you in a lot quicker.

Hi Bigjet, I am sorry you are going through this.
As far as I know it's a very rare type of cancer really.
But if you told them about your fear and they didn't book a time quicker then maybe try to calm yourself meanwhile you wait? I know it's very hard but.
Or if you have a female family member, sister, cousin etc you can get opinions. Maybe they can ease your mind a bit?

Well the lady who does scheduling said she isn’t a nurse so she can’t book me in sooner. So she gave me the “first available date”. I’m just a wreck. I want to cry so hard.
