Hi. I had very bad vaginal itching (am in menopause) and my doctor gave me steroid cream. She noted vulva dystrophy and vaginitis in my records and I thought she mentioned lichen p or lichen s, it's not in my records. The itching has subsided and I know this will be a chronic thing for me. I am scared because I read online that lichen p or lichen s increases your risk for vulvar cancer? Right now I do not have any sores or bumps, is that how vulvar cancer starts? I will see my gyn in a few weeks but until then I am very anxious. Thanks for your help.
