The Cervical Cancer Diagnosis Information Page is a collaborative project of NeedyMeds and the Foundation for Women's Cancer. It is intended to provide educational information and healthcare savings resources for those living with this diagnosis.

Cervical cancer is a cancer that begins in the cervix, the part of the uterus or womb that opens into the vagina. It is the part of the uterus that dilates and opens fully to allow a baby to pass into the birth canal. The normal cervix has two main types of cells: squamous (or flat) cells, which protect the outside of the cervix, and glandular cells which are mostly inside the cervix, and produce the fluid and mucus commonly seen during ovulation. Cervical cancer is caused by abnormal changes in either of these cell types in the cervix. Cervical precancers usually have no symptoms. That is why it is important to have a Pap test. In fact, it is the only gynecologic cancer that can be prevented by regular screening and preventive vaccination. If cervical cancer is diagnosed, it is important to seek care from a gynecologic oncologist. Cervical cancer may be treated with surgery, radiation therapy or chemotherapy.
