There are different types of treatment for patients with vaginal cancer, and may include surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy, or a combination of any of these options. There is no standard way to manage vaginal cancer.
Your treatment plan should be personalized to your overall health, the location, size and stage of the cancer. Your doctor will discuss these options with you, and recommend a plan that will best treat your cancer, yet preserve quality of life and lower toxicity as much as possible. If you want to get pregnant in the future and have not gone through menopause, talk with your doctor before starting treatment.
