Cervical cancer. Illustration showing the human female reproductive organs with cancer of the cervix, the neck of the uterus. Symptoms of cervical 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.
