Cervical Cancer Is On The Rise: Facts, Fiction, Fears

Cervical cancer starts in the cells lining the cervix — the lower part of the uterus (womb). This is sometimes called the uterine cervix. The fetus grows in the body of the uterus (the upper part).

The cervix connects the body of the uterus to the vagina (birth canal). The cervix has two different parts and is covered with two different types of cells. Most cervical cancers begin in the cells in the transformation zone. These cells do not suddenly change into cancer.

Instead, the normal cells of the cervix first gradually develop pre-cancerous changes that turn into cancer. Listen as one woman tells her story about detection, treatment, recovery and triumph. Others aren’t so lucky, but you can increase your chances.
