Cervical cancer is caused by changes to the cells in the cervix that most often occur as a result of human papilloma virus (HPV). This virus causes changes to the cells of the cervix that lead to pre cancerous lesions (CIN I, II, and III). If these pre cancerous cells are left unmonitored or untreated they have the propensity to progress to cervcial cancer.
The treatment of cervical cancer in usually a combination of surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy depending on the stage of cancer, and the age of the patient.
