Cancers of the Vulva and Vagina
Vulvar and vaginal cancers are rare throughout the world. In Africa and Asia the age-adjusted incidence rates of vulvar and vaginal cancer vary from 0.1 to 1.4 per 100,000 women. Higher rates for invasive vulvar cancer were reported in Europe and the Americas. This chapter reviews the epidemiology of vulvar and vaginal cancers. Topics covered include classification, molecular genetic characteristics, demographic patterns, environmental factors, host factors, pathogenesis, and preventive measures.
