In brief: A sore bottom
Local irritation and skin breakdown in the area under treatment is usually the most uncomfortable side effect, there can also be some bladder and rectal irritation.

In brief: The vulva describes
The external female genitalia, from mons veneris to labia to perineal body anterior to anus, inguinal nodes drain.
Surgical removal has obvious cosmetic and sexual consequence. Chemo has systemic effects, and radiotherapy effects to skin, bladder, gut and rectum. Likely associated with hpv types like cervix and anal cancers.
