Vaginal Cancer

Vaginal dysplasia, commonly associated with the HPV virus, is a condition that causes lesions to develop within the cervix which may advance to become vaginal cancer if not treated or removed. Vaginal cancer only affects about 5,300 women each year in the United States. Most vaginal cancers are classified as Squamous cell carcinoma, though melanoma, adenocarcinoma, and clear cell adenocarcinoma may also develop.
