SUPPORT CANADIANS LIVING WITH CANCER
Vaginal cancer statistics
Specific numbers for vaginal cancer are not reported separately but are included in the general category other and unspecified female genital organ cancers. This broad category includes similar cancers that are grouped and reported together. As a result, the statistics provided do not necessarily reflect the incidence and mortality for vaginal cancer.
It can take several years to collect and confirm cancer data, so the number of new cancer cases and deaths from recent years may not be available for some time. The most recent data available are provided below.
Incidence and mortality
