Cervical Cancer

Cervical Cancer

At the Swedish Cancer Institute, women with cervical cancer – as well as women with ovarian and uterine cancer – receive care through a nationally recognized gynecological cancer program. This includes the expertise of a renowned team of physicians, surgeons and other specialists. All Swedish cervical-cancer patients benefit from a multidisciplinary approach to care that encompasses leading-edge imaging techniques, the latest in treatment options and a full selection of high-quality support services.

Members of our multidisciplinary care teams meet regularly to share information and discuss patient cases, in order to determine an integrated course of care for each person.

     

Cervical cancer

The surface layer of the cervix is mostly composed of squamous cells. The squamous cells of the cervix merge with the glandular cells lining the cervical canal of the uterus. The area of merging is called the squamo-columnar junction and the area on the cervix outside of this junction is called the transformation zone. Cervical cancer occurs when cervical cells grow out of control, typically in the transformation zone. Learn more about cervical cancer.
