Cervical cancer is a cancer arising from the cervix caused abnormal growth of cells that have the ability to invade or spread to other parts of the body. The cancer is asymptomatic in early stages; later symptoms may include abnormal vaginal bleeding, pelvic pain, or pain during sexual intercourse. While bleeding after sex may not be serious, it may also indicate the presence of cervical cancer. Human papillomavirus (HPV) infection appears to be involved in the development of more than 90% of cases.

This video covers key aspects of cervical cancer and cervical intraepithelial neoplasia, including the causes, symptoms, diagnosis, treatment, and pathology.
