Cáncer cervical

El desarrollo del cáncer cervical es gradual y se inicia como una condición pre-cancerosa que se denomina displasia. Por lo general, es un cáncer de lento crecimiento y si se detecta de manera temprana puede tratarse con éxito. La realización de exámenes rutinarios de Papanicolaou puede detectar en forma temprana los cambios celulares en el cuello uterino, lo que permite una detección a tiempo del cáncer cervical.Cáncer cervical
