Cervical cancer

Cervical cancer is a rare cancer that starts in the cervix or neck of the uterus (womb).

It is a type of gynaecological cancer that can affect women from around the age of 25 years.

Most cervical cancers are caused by human papilloma virus (HPV) infection.

The Cancer Institute NSW recommends that all people with cancer have their care overseen by a multidisciplinary team (MDT).

Use our Canrefer website to find multidisciplinary teams and specialist centres in NSW and ACT.

Being diagnosed with cancer can be stressful and confusing. Having the right information can help you talk to your cancer care team and be more involved in your care.
