Project summary

Research into a new treatment for patients with recurrent vulvar cancer (again labia cancer).

It is being investigated whether in a selected group it is possible to treat the groin with the sentinel node procedure instead of the currently recommended surgery, which consists of removal of all lymph nodes from the groin.

In addition, all women with a first recurrence of labia cancer are investigated which treatment they receive and how it proceeds.
