Cervical cancer information

What is cervical cancer?

Cervical cancer begins in the cervix, the narrow organ at the bottom of the uterus that connects to the vagina. The cervix dilates during childbirth to allow for passage of a baby.

Cervical cancer incidence

The American Cancer Society estimates there will be 13,240 new cases of invasive cervical cancer diagnosed in the United States in 2018.

Routine Pap screening has reduced the incidence of cervical cancer in the United States, which was once a leading cause of death. The Pap test can find changes in the cervix before cancer develops. It can also detect cervical cancer in its earliest stage.
