Spot for a year and a half

Hi, Just need someone to maybe calm me down. I have a lesion on my vulva that's about the size of a quarter. It has been there for about 17months now and hasn't really changed to much in size. I put of the doctors appt because I'm tired of them taking bits and pieces of me. Anyhow, I finally see the gyn, he's talking about everything besides the spot. When I ask him about it, all he says is " I'm gonna biopsy it" I'm also having ablation done next mont so I asked if he could do the biopsy while under anesthesia and he agreed. He calls 3 days later and tells me I need an endometrial biopsy before the ablation ( bits and pieces) I go in for the endometrial biopsy and the spot is inflamed as it gets every couple of days. He takes a herpes culture regardless of the fact that they already tested via blood work. This hurt like hell. So the culture results came back negative ( duh) and he tells me they are scratching the biopsy and going ahead with a wide excision. Now I'm a little freaked. He says it's not viral, bacterial or fungal. Has anyone ever had this problem. The area bleeds, burns and is tender to the touch most days but every once in a while I get a few days where it just itches. Like I said, no real noticeable change in size.

I saw your post and that nobody responded. :( That spot sounds like it should be at least one of those you mentioned? Have you leared anything new? 

Ablation was the best thing that ever hapopened to me!

I did and unfortunately it was VIN 3. My normal gyn removed it but did. To get clean margins. Oncology did the second surgery yesterday and biopsies 2 other spots while I was under. Get my results on the 30th.
