Cervical Cancer Market

Cervical cancer occurs in the cells of the cervix—the lower part of the uterus that connects to the vagina. It usually originates in the cervix's transformation zone and spreads to regional lymph nodes; parametrial invasion is also common. The most significant cause of cervical cancer is persistent papillomavirus infection. HPV is detected in ~90% of cervical tumors, particularly the oncogenic subtypes such as HPV 16 and 18.
