Cervical cancer is the third most common type of cancer in women worldwide. In the United States, 30 women are diagnosed with cervical cancer and 11 women die from it every day.
Cervical cancer occurs when abnormal cells begin to develop and multiply on the cervix. The cervix is the lower part of the uterus (womb) that connects to the vagina in females. Cervical cancer usually has no symptoms, and is not hereditary like some other cancers. It typically develops very slowly and patients usually do not have any problems until the cancer is advanced and has spread.
