Cervical Cancer FAQs

Answers to questions you might have about qualifying for the program, getting screened for cervical cancer, and what to do if you have cervical cancer.

Cervical cancer is cancer that starts in a woman’s cervix. The cervix is the opening of the uterus. It connects the vagina (or birth canal) to the uterus (womb). Cervical cancer usually starts with changes to the cells on the cervix, called dysplasia. These abnormal cells can be removed to prevent cancer, if found early.
