3. Stages

Vulvar cancer is broken down into four stages. The first stage is a small tumor that is found only on the skin of the vulva or the perineum. The second stage of vulvar cancer means that the tumors have grown to other structures close by. These include the vagina, anus, and urethra.

By the time the patient has reached the third stage, the cancer will have spread to the lymph nodes. The fourth stage means that the cancer has spread to the upper sections of the vagina or urethra, or to other structures in the abdomen regions. The cancer may already have spread to other body parts further away.
