What is Cervical Cancer?
Cervical cancer starts in the cervix, the narrow opening into the uterus from the vagina, and most are squamous cell cancers with adenocarcinoma as the second most common type. Because it is slow growing, it is one of the most preventable types of cancer that can be detected with a pap smear and regular screening plus vaccinations to prevent human papillomavirus.
