In brief: Depends on stage

Most all vaginal cancers are of the squamous cell carcinoma type.
The treatment thereof depends on the stage (how advanced) of the cancer and the age/overall health of the patient. The nccn website provides guidelines that are updated periodically and are referenced by many oncologists (cancer doctors). A more detailed answer is beyond the scope of this format.

In brief: Depends

It depends on the severity and size of the cancer.
If the lesions are just pre-cancerous there are many many (from topical medications to excision to laser) options with careful observation of the area. If it is cancer, excision and then evaluation with a gyn- oncologist is recommended.
