Cervical Cancer

Most cervical cancers begin in the cervix, which is the lower part of the uterus. The cells covering the cervix are called squamous cells and glandular cells – about 80-90 percent of cervical cancers start as pre-cancers in the squamous cells. In addition to squamous cell carcinoma, adenocarcinomas may also develop in the glandular cells. Learn more about cervical cancer.
