As per to the American Cancer Society, nearly 1 out of every 1,100 women will have this cancer it in her entire life, and only 15 % of cases happen in women under 40 age. (Roughly half of all cases occur in women older than 70.) Also, cancer which spreads beyond vagina is much hard to treat.
Is Vaginal cancer same as cervical cancer?
No both are different. The cervical cancer is the cancer of the cervix containing cancerous cells (a narrow structure that connects uterus to the vagina) while Vaginal cancer (Vulvar cancer) is rare cancer that occurs in your vagina. It is most commonly occurs in the cells that line at your vagina surface, which is sometimes called birth canal. Also, if a lady has cancer in both the vagina and cervix, it’s generally called as cervical cancer.
