Updated: Feb 2, 2021
#Cancer is named after the part of the body where it starts even though later it may spread to other parts of the body.
#CervicalCancer begins in the cervix of the uterus (womb). Cervix is the hollow cylindrical passage that connects the lower part of a woman's uterus to her vagina. Thus, cervix is the entrance of the womb and cancers that start in this region are called cervical cancers.
#CervicalCancer can be treated successfully if it is diagnosed early. #PapSmear test can help detect abnormal changes in the cervix that can later become cancerous. Ask your doctor about cervical cancer.
