Substantiation of prognosis in cancer of the vulva

Voprosy onkologii

Based on the analysis of clinico-morphological findings in 302 patients with cancer of the vulva, the author pinpoints further the prognostic value of the factors characterizing the peculiar features of primary tumor and its local and regional spread. The 5-year survival was noted in 56.3%. The prognosis is found to be worse in a decreased degree of tumor histological differentiation, its localization in the clitoris region, in endophytic growth, the increased perimeter and infiltration of underlying tissues, and if regional lymph nodes are involved by metastases.
