In Oct 2004 I was diagnosed with a walnut size tumor on the vaginal wall. I had surgery to remove it and two lymph nodes in Jan 2005. Although my tumor was inside the vaginal wall, my onocologist called it vulvar cancer. (See my postings on this site, under vulvar cancer). I refused radiation. I took an alternative called Protocell that I learned about in a book called Outsmart Your Cancer. I am cancer free two years later. I would suggest that any one with vaginal cancer, ask their doctor about possible side effects from radiation. Per the American Cancer Society phamlet on vaginal/vulvar cancer, possible side effects from radiation could damage the uretha,bladder,colon,rectum, and intestines. My doctor never explained these possible side effects to me. That is why I refused radiation, and went with an alternative that worked for me.
You can read more on my personal web page, on this site as well.

Good Luck, be informed, and ask questions.
