Dr. Kellogg Spadt shares what VIN is.
Dr. Kellogg Spadt:
VIN is an acronym that stands for vulvar intraepithelial neoplasia. This is actually a change in the tissue of some area of the vulva that is precancerous in nature. Much of VIN is what we call multifocal and it can affect more than one area at the same time. The tissue changes associated with VIN are often associated with exposure to a virus called Human Papilloma Virus, which can be sexually transmitted.
