What are the symptoms of vaginal cancer?

The following are the most common symptoms of vaginal cancer; however, each individual may experience symptoms differently. Symptoms may include:

  • Bleeding or discharge not related to menstrual periods.
  • Difficult or painful urination. 
  • Pain during intercourse. 
  • Pain in the pelvic area. 
  • Constipation. 
  • A mass that can be felt.

Even if a woman has had a hysterectomy, she still has a chance of developing vaginal cancer. The symptoms of vaginal cancer may resemble other medical conditions or problems. Always consult your physician for a diagnosis.
