When found in early stages, vaginal cancer can often be cured.

Treatment options depend on the following:

  • The stage and size of the cancer.
  • Whether the cancer is close to other organs that may be damaged by treatment.
  • Whether the tumor is made up of squamous cells or is an adenocarcinoma.
  • Whether the patient has a uterus or has had a hysterectomy.
  • Whether the patient has had past radiation treatment to the pelvis.
