In brief: Local and distant

Vaginal cancer is uncommon, it is associated with hpv infection, local lesion is usually an ulcerated mass with bleeding and invasion into surrounding tissues and lymph nodes and later spread to other organs.

In brief: Inflammation

Any type of cancer in the body will increase the body's immune response, leading to an increase in inflammation.
Circulating proteins and cells that fight cancer will increase in the body--in turn increasing the inflammatory response. It the body's way of fighting off the tumor growth.
