What does vagina cancer look like? I have a cluster of big white lumps that look like they're falling out from inside.

Cancer unlikely: It is unlikely that you have vaginal cancer. What you described suggests vulvar warts. It would be prudent to see a doctor as it is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without examining you.
Wish you good health! - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex.
Get HPV vaccine, ...Read more
