Treatments for Vagina cancer

Treatments for Vagina cancer:

There is no way to prevent primary vagina cancer. However, secondary vagina cancer that occurs due to the spreading of cervical cancer may be prevented in some cases. Although guidelines vary, it is often recommended that teenage girls and women begin having regular Pap smear screening tests to screen for cervical cancer. Prevention also includes abstaining from sex or having sex only within the framework of a monogamous relationship, in which neither partner is infected with a sexually transmitted disease or been exposed to the HPV virus. Prevention also includes always using a condom for each sex act.

A vaccine, called Gardasil, has also been developed that provides protection from the types of HPV that cause most cervical cancers.

Once vagina cancer has developed, treatment is individualized to the individual case, the specific type of vagina cancer, and the stage of cancer. The prognosis for a cure of vagina cancer is best when the disease is diagnosed and treated at an early stage. Prognosis also depends of the specific type of vagina cancer.

Treatment of vagina cancer may include surgery but generally is treated with radiation therapy. Depending on the type of vagina cancer, treatment may include surgery, radiation therapy, and possibly chemotherapy.
