What Is Vaginal Cancer?

Combating cancer starts with being armed with essential information about the disease.

Vaginal cancer occurs in the muscular part of the female genital tract (vagina). The vagina, also known as the birth canal, is a three- to four-inch tube that connects the uterus to the vulva (the outside part of female genitals). The majority of vaginal cancers occur in the cells that line the surface of the vagina. However, while several types of cancer can spread to the vagina from other areas of the body, cancer that starts in the vagina (primary vaginal cancer) is rare.

Vaginal Cancers We Treat at New Hope Unlimited

There two primary types of vaginal cancer include:

Squamous cell carcinoma

The most common type of vaginal cancer, squamous cell carcinoma accounts for 70 percent of cases. These cancers develop in the epithelial cells that line the surface of the vagina.

Adenocarcinoma

15 percent of vaginal cancers are adenocarcinomas. These begin in the gland cells of the vagina an occur most frequently in women over the age of 50. A subtype known as clear-cell adenocarcinoma may develop in younger women whose mothers were exposed to diethylstilbestrol (DES) during pregnancy.

Other types of cancers, including melanomas and sarcomas, can also develop in the vagina. Further, specific cancers may spread to the vagina from their original sites such as carcinoma of the cervix, uterus, rectum, and bladder.

Vaginal Cancer Symptoms

Early vaginal cancer may not reveal itself through symptoms. As it progresses, signs of vaginal cancer may include:

  • Abnormal vaginal bleeding, for example, after intercourse or menopause
  • Watery vaginal discharge
  • Painful or frequent urination
  • A lump in the vagina
  • Pelvic pain, especially during sex
  • Fistulas, in later-stage cancer

If you experience one or more of these signs, speak with a medical professional to receive an accurate diagnosis.

Vaginal Cancer Causes

Medical scientists do not know the exact cause of vaginal cancer. However, several factors may increase a woman's risk. They include:

  • Diethylstilbestrol (DES), a preventive drug against miscarriages
  • Vaginal adenosis, a benign abnormality
  • Human papillomavirus (HPV)
  • Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)
  • Cervical cancer or pre-cancer
  • Tobacco use, including smoking and chewing
  • Alcohol consumption in excess

It is important to note that not all women with risk factors develop tumors in the vagina, and no woman without risk factors is immune to the disease.

Diagnostic Tests for Vaginal Cancer

After undertaking a physical and medical exam, your doctor may order the following tests to help detect cancer and determine if the malignancy has spread (metastasize):

  • Biopsy
  • Colposcopy
  • Computed axial tomography (CT) scan
  • Positron emission tomography (PET) scan
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan
  • Chest x-ray
  • Endoscopic tests, such as:
    • Proctosigmoidoscopy
    • Cystoscopy

An accurate diagnosis is key to improving your vaginal cancer prognosis and life expectancy.
