In brief: Not likely

It is more likely due to yeast infection of bacterial vaginosis.
Skin disorders that affect rest of the body can also affect the vulva and may cause itching, including allergy to materials in your clothing, e.g., detergents.

In brief: Itching

You are writing about two completely different areas.
The vagina is inside and the vulva is the skin it side the vagina between the thighs. Itching is a common symptom of either area which is only rarely associated with cancer.
