Cervical cancer is a disease in which cancer cells grow in the cervix. According to the American Cancer Society, an estimated 12,200 new cases of invasive cervical cancer will be diagnosed yearly and an estimated 4,100 women will die of the disease. Fortunately, cervical cancer is completely preventable if precancerous cell changes are detected and treated early.
