Cervical cancer is a major gynecological cancer which involves uncontrolled cell division and tissue invasiveness of the female uterine cervix.

Incidence rates are highest in sub-Saharan Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean, and Oceania/Australasia, and lowest in Western Asia, Australia/New Zealand, and Northern America. Human papillomavirus (HPV) is a major cause of the main types of cervical cancer (the two main histological subtypes being squamous cell cancer and adenocarcinoma), and is believed to be responsible for around 95% of cervical cancers.
