About this work


Illustration showing an artists interpretation of a Cervical cancer cell, the image was drawn from an electron micrograph of the structure. Cervical cancer forms in tissues of the cervix (the organ connecting the uterus and vagina). It is usually a slow-growing cancer that may not have symptoms but is normally detected with regular Pap tests ( otherwise known as cervical smear - a procedure in which cells are scraped from the cervix and looked at under a microscope for any cellular changes). Cervical cancer is almost always caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV) infection.
