In early development of the disease, vaginal cancer can be completely asymptomatic; the tumor is growing in your vagina without producing any symptoms. When symptoms finally emerge, vaginal cancer is characterized by abnormal vaginal bleeding that sometimes occurs after intercourse. The bleeding may be intermenstrual (occurs between menstrual periods) or postmenopausal (after menopause). In addition to non menstrual bleeding, you can experience the following conditions:
- difficult or painful urination
- vaginal pain during intercourse
- pain in the pelvic area
- Presence of lump or mass in your vagina
- Watery vaginal discharge which is often bloody and foul smelling.
