In addition to the conditions listed in the differential diagnosis, other disorders to consider in a woman with possible cervical cancer include the following:

  • Cervicitis/infection, particularly granulomatous (which is rare)

  • Primary melanoma and Paget disease

  • Vaginal cancer

Another rare possibility is that a primary cancer elsewhere in the body has metastasized to the cervix.
