Caption: Cancer of the cervix. Illustration of a sagittal section through the female urogenital region, showing malignant (cancerous) tissue (red) on the cervix (neck of the womb). The cancer has spread (metastasised) to the vaginal wall (below cervix), the bladder (left) and the rectum (right). Symptoms of this cancer include bleeding between periods, pain after sexual intercourse and heavier periods. Cancer of the cervix is rare and if detected early is almost always cured. If it has progressed to the stage where it has spread, it can be fatal. Treatment is surgical removal of the cancer, and sometimes the entire uterus, combined with radiotherapy and chemotherapy.
