Cervical cancer

Cervical cancer begins to develop when the healthy cells of the cervix are infected with the human papillomavirus (HPV) or when they change and start growing a mass called a tumor. The cervix may develop a growth or tumor if the HPV infection is left untreated for a long time.

At first, when the cell begins to change, these changes are called abnormal, and the cells are called “atypical cells.” Some of these abnormal changes, according to researchers, are the first in a sequence of gradual changes that might result in cancer. From what is known, some of these abnormal cells go away on their own, but there are some that can lead to cancer.

The ectocervix, which is part of the cervix that is visible in the vagina, and the endocervix, which is the canal between the vagina and the uterus, both have the potential for the growth of cervical cancer.

There are two main types of cervical cancer: squamous cell carcinoma and adenocarcinoma.
