Different Stages Of Vaginal Cancer

Different Stages Of Vaginal Cancer

Vaginal cancer is one of the rare cancers found in the gynecological cancers. This is the condition in which, the vagina gets infected with the cancer cells and if not healed in the early stages, it can lead to spreading in various surrounding areas. This is the form of cancer which can get spreads in various surrounding areas making the infection more prolonged and wide spread. The tumor lumps and such conditions result into vaginal cancer which can cause severe complications in women making it tough to fight. From starting to the vaginal wall to capturing the lungs and al the distant areas, the vaginal cancer spreads. Just like other cancers, the vaginal cancer also is detected and healed stage by stage and the intensity and spread of the vaginal cancer is detected.

Here Are The Stages Of Vaginal Cancer Though Which Is Detected And Healed!

Stage 0:

The cancer of vagina starts from the vaginal wall and the spreads to the surrounding areas. This is the first and primary stage of vaginal cancer where the cancer cells are found just only in the vaginal wall. The cancer cells have not grown in to the deep cells and are just found on the top layers. It I the primary stage where the cancer cells just emerge and not cause any harm. The top layer of the vaginal wall is considered during this phase and the cancer cells are not deep rooted!

Stages Of Vaginal Cancer

Stage I:

In this case, the cancer cells are grown widely in the first top layer of the vaginal wall but have not yet spread into the nearby surrounding areas. No spread in the nearby organs like lymph nodes and lungs. This is the second layer of vaginal cancer where the cancer cells get increased but not yet get spread over the surroundings.

Stage I

 

Stage II:

In this third stage, the cancer cells are spread to the tissues surrounding the vagina but have not yet spread over the pelvic area. The pelvic area is the nearby cavity to which the vagina is attached. This is the case where the cancer cells start spreading in the surrounding tissues making them infected!

Stage II

Stage III:

In this stage there are two possibilities which can occur and the spread of the cancer cells can lead in any of these directions

1. The cancer cells are spread to the pelvic walls and started capturing the pelvic areas. The lymph nodes are yet not affected and the cells are just spread to the pelvic wall2.

2. In this case, the cancer cells are in the vagina and can start grabbing the nearby tissues. The cancer cells grab all the surrounding tissues but yet the lymph nodes are unaffected by the cancer cells.

Stage III

 

Stage IVA:

This is the stage which can be likely to occur during the later stages of vaginal cancer. In this first case, the cancer cells are grown out to the vagina and nearby areas such as the pelvic wall, the rectum and such tissues but has not yet spread to the lymph nodes.

Stage IVA

Stage IVB

This is the stage in which the cancer cells are spread to the lungs and such areas.

These are the stages of vaginal cancer and how the cancer spreads for organ to organ and from tissues affecting the different surrounding areas over the vagina. In the last stage, the areas surrounding the vagina like pelvis, rectum, lungs and lymph nodes get affected by the cancer cells and become tough and hard to treat.

Stage IVB
