Abstract

The benign tumors of the vulva are not very common. There are a few types. The fibroid, fibromyoma and dermatofibroma are firm and of greyish brown color most often treated by surgery to ensure that they are not cancerous. The hemangioma originates in the blood vessels of the vulvar region, especially the major labia. It is well defined, raised and red. The hemangioma originates in the blood vessels of the vulvar region, especially the labia majora. It is well defined, raised and red. Lipoma is a soft tissue that can be attached to the skin by a stem (pediculated) or flattened on the skin (sessile). It is not usually treated unless it causes pain or distress. A biopsy can be done to diagnose most benign tumors and to exclude cancer. The treatment of benign tumors of the vulva depends on the type of tumor and may include surgical removal.
