Medical Evaluation

Vaginal cancer can be found during a routine pelvic examination. To detect this cancer, women sometimes are given a Pap test to look for abnormal cells, an inspection of the vagina with a special lighted microscope and/or sample (biopsy) of the vaginal tissue for testing.

If vaginal cancer is suspected or diagnosed, it is important to seek care first from a gynecologic oncologist.
