Vulvar intraepithelial neoplasia Pictures. When you look at the above VIN photos, you should know that abnormal cells in the vulva skin can happen either in one area or several areas at the sametime.
Vulvar intraepithelial neoplasia (VIN) The risk of progression to cancer seems to be highest with VIN3 and lower with VIN2. This risk can be altered with treatment. In one study, 88% of untreated VIN3 progressed to cancer, but of the women who were treated, only 4% developed vulvar cancer.
