What is Cervical cancer?

Cervical cancer occurs due to the uncontrollable growth of cells in the cervix. This abnormal growth of cells can seize the space of nearby tissues and spread across the entire body. Eventually, this growth of cells leads to the formation of cancer tumors. At the initial stage of cervical cancer, cells multiply at a slow rate, although they can catch speed and spread quickly. Commonly found cervical cancer is known as squamous cell carcinoma. The origin of this type of cervical cancer is due to the abnormal growth of squamous cells that lie on the surface of the cervix. This type of cervical cancer contributes up to 80% of all kinds of cervical cancers. The development in oncology has substantially increased the survival rate for most cervical cancer patients. With research, doctors are studying the various possible causes of cervical cancer and approaching early medication and treatment.
