How Does Cervical Cancer Develop?

Most cervical cancers arises in the little cells in the inner lining of the cervix. Cervical cancers take many years to develop. Over a period of time, the cells lining in the cervix may slowly develop pre-cancerous changes and eventually turn into cancer cells if left untreated. The most commonly used term by doctors to describe these pre-cancerous cells is “Cervical Intra-epithelial Neoplasia (CIN)”.
