If there are symptoms, a doctor may do certain tests to see if there is cancer, usually beginning by looking at the vulva and feeling for lumps.

The doctor may then cut out a small piece of tissue (called a biopsy) from the vulva and look at it under a microscope.

A patient will be given some medicine to numb the area when the biopsy is done.

Some pressure may be felt, but usually with no pain.

This test is often done in a doctor's office.
