Treatment

Most patients with vaginal cancer are treated with surgery or radiation therapy.

There are four types of vaginal cancer, depending on the type of cancer where the cancer began. (1) Vaginal squamous cell carcinoma is the most common type and refers to the thin, flat cells that line the surface of the vagina; (2) vaginal adenocarcinoma begins in the glandular cells on the surface of the vagina; (3) vaginal melanoma which develops on the pigment-producing cells of the vagina; and (4) vaginal sarcoma which develops in the connective tissue cells or smooth muscle cells in the vagina walls.
