Cervical Cancer

Cervical cancer occurs when malignant cells form in the cervix typically caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV), though there are a number of other risk factors that could lead to cervical cancer. With regular preventative care appointments, cervical cancer can be discovered early on and there are many treatment options for patients. Cancer Center at Illinois scientists are tackling a number of cancers that impact human reproductive systems – and the campus is home to experts on the subject, working together, to prevent, diagnose, and treat cancers, like cervical, better.
