Question: Cause and cure of vaginal melanoma

Answered by Dr. Chobufo Ditah 31 minutes later
Brief Answer:
Has this been confirmed by biopsy?

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thank you so much for this query.

I am so sorry to hear about this vaginal melanoma. To make sure we are talking of the same disease condition, kindly let me know if this has been confirmed by biopsy or not. If it has not been confirmed, I will suggest that you get a biopsy and report the results to me. The vaginal is a very unlikely site for melanomas and that is why I will like to review this diagnosis before providing more precise information on this. Please, kindly address these worries.

I hope to hear from you at your earliest convenience and promise to provide more insights as soon as we get this going.
