What is cervical cancer?
Cervical cancer is a disease in which cancerous (malignant) cells form in the tissue of the cervix. Most cervical cancers start in the cervix transformation zone, which is located at the point where the inner and outer part of the cervix meet.
The cervix is the narrow end of the uterus that leads into the vagina.
