Abstract

This paper looks into a review of our experience on the woman surviving to date, over seven years of detection of primary vaginal carcinoma associated with utero vaginal prolapse, despite she had a second lesion. Such cancer although rare, is continuing to get reported and thus warranting a Primary Health-Care approach on post-menopausal women for prevention or early detection.
