The cervix is the lowest, thin portion of the uterus that forms a canal that connects to the vagina, which leads to the outside of the body. Cervical cancer develops when healthy cells in the cervix becomes cancerous. This generally takes several years to occur, but it can potentially occur in a matter of weeks. Cervical cancer can be detected through a cytological examination of epidermal cells taken from the cervix during the pap smear procedure. In the United States, roughly 15,000 women are diagnosed with cervical cancer each year. The term "squamous intraepithelial lesion" (SIL) refers to the abnormal proliferation of squamous cells on the cervix's surface. Depending on how much of the cervix is damaged and how aberrant the cells are, the changes in the cells are classified as low grade or high grade.
