Out of the five main types of gynecologic cancers, vaginal and vulvar cancers are the most rare. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), vaginal and vulvar cancers account for 6-7 percent of all gynecologic cancers diagnosed in the U.S., with an estimated 1,000 women diagnosed with vaginal cancer and 3,500 women with vulvar cancer each year. Treatment is most effective for vaginal and vulvar cancers if the disease is detected early.
