Cancers of the vulva and vagina occur less commonly than the other genital tract tumours, accounting for approximately 9% of all cancers of the female genital tract worldwide. Despite the adjacent status of the two organs the aetiology of cancers of the vulva and vagina are not always shared. Staging is also complex as tumours with a major vaginal component and a minor vulvar component are classified and staged as vulvar tumours. Similarly, tumours with a major vaginal component and a minor cervical component are classified as cervical tumours.
