This information is only about invasive cervical cancer. It's not about precancer, abnormal cells found only on the surface of the cervix, or other cervical changes. These cell changes are treated differently from invasive cervical cancer. Women with abnormal cervical cells only on the surface may want to read the NCI booklet Understanding Cervical Changes: A Health Guide for Women. It tells about abnormal cells and describes treatments.
This information and more about Cervical Cancer is provided by the National Cancer Institute. You can also ask your cancer care team about your individual situation.
