In brief: Excision

Vaginal cancer is rare and is usually treated with excision of the cancer and possibly lymph node removal.
This may be followed by radiation and/or chemotherapy.

In brief: Surgery, radiation

Find out first if the cancer started in the vagina or it spread from the uterus.
In most cases, surgery is used but needs to be followed with radiation. Sometimes chemotherapy is used too, as an adjunct to make radiation work better, particularly in young patients when aggressive treament should be attempted.
