Cervix Cancer / Cervical Cancer - What it is

 
The cervix is the lower part of the uterus (womb). Cancers that arise in the cervix are potentially curable if detected in the early stage. Therefore, early detection is the key to improving survival. The two most common types of cervical cancers are squamous cell carcinoma and adenocarcinoma of the cervix.



How common is Cervical Cancer?

Cervical cancer is the 10th most common female cancer in Singapore. About 215 cases are diagnosed every year between 2014 - 2018.

Age of Onset
 
Pre-invasive cancer often occurs in women in their late 20’s to 30’s. These are termed as Cervical Intraepithelial Neoplasia (CIN). These are changes in the lining of the cervix which can lead to cervical cancer. Over time, these pre-cancerous lesions can progress and become invasive cancer if left untreated.
