Cervical Squamous Cell Carcinoma And Endocervical Adenocarcinoma

The cervix contains two types of cells and when cancer arises from squamous cells within the cervix it is cervical squamous cell carcinoma. The endocervix is located just above the body of the cervix and contains glandular cells. When cancer begins here it is called endocervical adenocarcinoma. Here is the latest research on these two types of cancers.
