What is Cervical Cancer?

Cervical cancer forms in the lining of the cervix, the lower part of the uterus as it enters the vagina. At first, cells turn from normal into pre-cancer and go on to become cancer cells as the years go by. In certain cases this might happen more rapidly. Such changes are known by various terms like CIN or cervical intraepithileal neoplasa or just cervical dysplasia. In some women, similar changes might disappear by themselves, involving no treatment for cervical cancer. However, it is better to treat them before they have a chance to turn into real cancers.
