Ulcer, sores in vagina, mouth. Cancer? What could this be?

I have about 5 ulcer looking sores in my vagina, i aslo have 3 ulcers in my mouth and a very sore throat. I had shingles on my hip before and have been tested for genital herpes(waiting for results) but i dont belive it is that, as they arent clustered and dont really hurt unless i pee. im very swollen down there too. I had sypmtoms of a yeast infection about 7 days ago and got treatment for that and it cleared it up. before noticing my first sore, it was very sore to touch and was just a lump.Im worried its cancer, as my mum had cervical cancer when she was my age (im 20) also i dont know if this is relevant but i used hair removal cream on my pubic hairs and it irrated my skin leaving liitle sores in the pubic area that look a little like ingrown hairs but very painful, could if be because of this? what could this be? im extrememly worried.

Your symptoms sounds like herpes simplex infection, nothing to worry at all, herpes simplex virus can rarely be cured , remain in the nerve root at dormant stage for years and occasionally reactivated. Other possibilities are fungal infections that are also common, you should not use any irritant to pubic area and try to keep that area dry as much as possible. Anyway at your age screening for cervical cancer is necessary consult your gynaecologist.
