The doctor ran a biopsy instead of surgery and she will receive the results of her biopsy during her follow-up appointment in the second week of October. The doctor said she might not need surgery but it will depend on her biopsy’s result.

Mi is a 28-year-old woman from Thailand. She now lives with her parents, one brother and two sisters in Mae Tao, Mae Sot, Tak Province. Her three siblings study at two different migrant schools. Mi’s father works at construction site and mother also works occasionally as a day labourer. Mi herself, stays at home as she lives with an intellectual disability.

Around five years ago, Mi complained about itchiness in her vagina. Her mother took her to Mae Tao Clinic (MTC), where the midwives and medics completed a full examination on Mi. She was then put on medication and she seemed fine again. About two weeks ago, Mi’s mother noticed a wet spot on the seat of Mi’s pants. When Mi’s mother looked at Mi’s vagina, she found it was very red, swollen and saw what looked like scratch marks. She also saw some lesions around Mi’s vulva. She was referred to Mae Sot Hospital (MSH) to consult a gynaecologist. After examining Mi, the doctor said that Mi’s vulva was enlarged and that she has abnormal growths around it. They were also told that Mi needs to be admitted to the hospital to remove the growth in her vulva before running a biopsy to confirm her condition. She is experiences redness and swelling in her vulva.

Mi sought treatment through our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund. she is now scheduled to undergo mass removal surgery on September 25. She is requesting $1,500 to cover the total cost of her procedure and care.

Mi’s mother said, “I want her to be healthy. She can’t live with it like that. I’m very worried for her as she is not like other children. Sometimes I think about her future and it scares me. What if her sisters will not look after her, after I die? I know she can’t survive on her own. I don’t want her to face troubles on her own. For now, all I want for her is to have the right treatment so that she will be well again.”
