Vaginal Cancer

The vagina, also called the birth canal, is about four inches in length and spans the space between the cervix and the vulva. Its surface is lined by squamous cells and about 70 out of every 100 cases of vaginal cancer begin in these squamous cells. Glandular cells are also found beneath the surface layer of cells. Cancer in the glandular cells is called adenocarcinoma and accounts for about 15 out of every 100 cases of vaginal cancer. Learn more about vaginal cancer.
