Cervical cancer

Cervical cancer occurs when cancer cells start growing in the tissues of the cervix. It usually grows slowly and may not cause symptoms. And it's almost always caused by a human papillomavirus (HPV) infection.

The cervix is part of the female reproductive system. It's the lower part of the uterus that opens into the vagina.
