Normal cervix wall. Light micrograph of a section through healthy tissue from the cervix, as part of a series showing the stages of cervical cancer. Cancer of the cervix is rare and if detected early is almost always cured. If it has progressed to the grade III stage, or has invaded surrounding tissues, surgical removal of the tissue, and sometimes the entire uterus, is needed.
