Cervical Cancer Facts

Cervical cancer occurs most often in women over the age of 40. It is different from cancer that begins in other parts of the uterus and requires different treatment. Most cervical cancers are squamous cell carcinomas and adenocarcinomas.

According to the American Cancer Society (ACS), about 12,200 cases of invasive cervical cancer were diagnosed in the U.S. during 2010. Some researchers estimate that noninvasive cervical cancer is nearly four times more common than invasive cervical cancer.
