What Sets Us Apart

Vaginal cancer develops in the vagina, which is the muscular, tube-like structure that extends from the uterus to the vulva, the outer part of a woman’s genitals.

Physicians at NYU Langone’s Laura and Isaac Perlmutter Cancer Center have extensive experience diagnosing and managing this extremely rare cancer. Together, our gynecologic oncologists, imaging specialists, radiation oncologists, and medical oncologists create a personalized treatment plan that takes into account the location, size, and type of tumor. They also offer treatment for precancerous lesions of the vagina, which are called vaginal intraepithelial neoplasia, or dysplasia.


At NYU Langone’s Perlmutter Cancer Center, a National Cancer Institute-designated cancer center, we personalize the care of every patient.More About Perlmutter Cancer Center
