Lesions are abnormal changes in an organ or in tissue due to injury or disease.
There are many types of lesions but they are usually categorised according to whether they are cancerous (malignant) or non-cancerous (benign).

Vulval lesion excision
Abnormal growths or ulcers in the opening of your vagina (vulva) are called vulval lesions. In many cases vulval lesions do not present a problem. However, if you are at all concerned or if your lesions bother you, you should see your GP. In many cases you will be referred to a gynaecologist for further diagnosis and (if necessary) removal of the lesions.
