Clinical Information:
Squamous cell carcinoma of the cervix is believed to develop in progressive stages from normal through precancerous (dysplastic) stages, to carcinoma in situ, and eventually invasive carcinoma. This sequence is felt to develop over a matter of years in most patients. The etiology of cervical carcinoma is unknown, but the disease is believed to be related to sexual activity and possibly sexually transmitted viral infections such as human papillomavirus (HPV). Most cervical carcinomas and precancerous conditions occur in the transformation zone (squamo-columnar junction), therefore, this area needs to be sampled if optimum results are to be obtained.
