What is Cervical Cancer?

Cervical cancer is a type of cancer that occurs in the cells of the cervix — the lower part of the uterus that connects to the vagina. Various strains of the human papillomavirus (HPV), a sexually transmitted infection, play a role in causing most cervical cancer.

1) Abnormal vaginal bleeding is the most common presenting symptom of cervical cancer

2) Vaginal bleeding after menopause or bleeding in between periods
