Types of Vulvar Cancer

There are several types of vulvar cancer:

  • Squamous cell carcinoma - The most common type, making up about 90% of all cases. It affects the skin cells of the vulva.
  • Vulvar melanoma - A type of skin cancer that develops from the cells that give the skin its colour. About 2% to 4% of vulvar cancers are melanoma.
  • Adenocarcinoma - Cancer that begins in the glandular cells lining the skin of the vulva.
  • Verrucous carcinoma – Slow growing cancer that looks like a large wart.
  • Sarcomas - Cancers that develop from tissue cells, including muscle, fat under the skin and connective tissue. Sarcomas tend to grow faster than other types of vulvar cancer.
