What Are the Symptoms of Vaginal Cancer?

What Are the Symptoms of Vaginal Cancer?

There are often no symptoms in the early stages of vaginal cancer, before cancer has spread. Fortunately, most cases of this rare cancer are diagnosed in the early stages. Many women with invasive vaginal cancer do, however, develop symptoms such as:

  • Vaginal bleeding after menopause

  • Vaginal bleeding after intercourse

  • Abnormal vaginal discharge

  • A mass in your vagina that you can feel

  • Pain during sex

  • Pain when urinating

  • Constipation

  • Constant pain in the pelvis

  • An abnormal Pap smear 

These are signs of vaginal cancer. Less serious, noncancerous conditions may also cause these symptoms. If you have any of these symptoms, talk with your doctor.
