What are the types of cervical cancer?
The three main types of cervical cancer are:
- Squamous cell carcinoma - This is the most common type of cervical cancer. They typically form on the outer part of the cervix closest to the uterus.
- Adenocarcinoma - This type of cancer starts in the mucus-producing gland cells that line the inner part of the cervix closest to the uterus (endocervix).
- Adenosquamous carcinoma - The rarest form of cervical cancer, it has both adenocarcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma cell types.
