Vulval clinic


The vulval clinic is a clinic for women with conditions affecting the vulva, lower vagina or perineum.

The main reasons you may attend our vulval clinic include: vulval pain, vulval irritations,  and vulval lumps.

More on what we do

When you attend the clinic, our specialist will need to examine your vulva and the surrounding area.

This usually includes an internal examination, and swabs and/or a biopsy (a small sample of tissue) may be taken if appropriate.


Treatment will depend on your condition.  Sometimes biopsies are required (where small samples of tissue are taken). This can be performed during your appointment.

You will be advised of the most appropriate treatment for your condition by either one of our clinical nurse specialist or by one of our consultants.
