Customer Question

I have had a dark mark on my labia for years that would periodically burst and bleed profusely until it healed. Recently I'm seeing many dark marks and I'm very concerned.

These are likely to be hemangiomas especially if they bleed. They are blood vessels at the skin surface Rarely skin cancer or melanoma occurs in the vulvar area. Your Dr may want to biopsy one of the lesions to be sure.
