Abstract

Benign vulvar growths are rare. Initially these growths remain small and asymtomatic. Due to social stigma, young women in this stage often prefer to conceal the pathology. With considerable growth, apart from physical complaints, they might cause psychological problems of the subjects and even social withdrawal. Urgent detection and subsequent removal of the growth along with counselling is warranted to improve the patient’s self-esteem.

Keywords: Fibroma, Vulva, Benign
