In brief: Spot on vaginal wall

It is really tough to see inside the vagina.
Black spots don't mean cancer, but they do beg for evaluation.

In brief: Doctor can evaluate

Because it is difficult for a woman to look inside her own vagina, a woman who thinks there is a new change on the surface of her vagina should have an exam by a primary care or ob-gyn doctor. If the spot looks non-cancerous, the doctor may choose to watch it over time.
It the spot looks suspicious, the ob-gyn doctor can biopsy it to see what it looks like under a microscope.
