Can cancer treatment cause vaginal tightness?
Good In Bed answeredImmediately following your cancer treatment, you may feel tighter than you ever have before. You aren't imagining things. This is a common side effect of treatment, and radiation therapy to the pelvic region in particular can cause scar tissue to form in your vagina, and can also cause your vagina to narrow. And while this can improve that delicious feeling of friction you experience during the ol' in-and-out, it can also make sex painful. And no one wants to have sex if they're anticipating an ouch feeling instead of an ooh… In fact, this expectation of pain can also adversely affect your libido.

What is the areola?
Honor Society of Nursing (STTI) answered
Areola is a term generally used to describe the area of dark-colored skin on the breast that surrounds the nipple. Areola can also be used to describe other small circular areas, such as the area around an inflamed pimple.
The size and shape of the areola varies from person to person, but mature women for the most part have larger areolae than men and adolescents.
