For women with vaginal cancer, outcomes depend on the stage at detection. Regular Thin Prep or HPV screening can identify pre-cancer changes before the cancer develops. For all cases of vaginal cancers combined, the relative five-year survival rate is about 50%. For more information on vaginal cancer survival rates, visit the American Cancer Society website.
Clinical trials help keep our cancer care on the leading edge by allowing researchers to apply cancer knowledge as it develops to give you the best chance of survival.
At Markey, our specialists place a high value on all areas of vaginal cancer treatment, from patient care designed for the unique patient to developing treatments of the future.
