Cervical cancer is the second most common malignancy in women after breast cancer, so cervical cancer screening is one of the most important screenings for women on a regular basis. Most often it occurs between the ages of 30 and 60.
It usually develops very slowly and usually has no symptoms at an early stage. The first symptoms usually occur when the developing tumour has already filtered through the cervical muscle and/or spread to the surrounding tissues.
