Symptoms of vaginal cancer vary from woman to woman. They may include:
- Abnormal vaginal bleeding, especially after sex
- Abnormal vaginal discharge
- A mass or bump in the vagina
- Pain during sex
- Pain when you urinate
- Pain in the pelvic area that does not go away
If you have these symptoms, it probably does not mean you have cancer. They usually are caused by conditions, such as infections, that are not cancer. However, if you notice any of these signs, you should see a doctor.
In rare cases, vaginal cancer can be passed down from one generation to the next. Genetic counseling may be right for you. Visit our genetic testing page to learn more.
