Cervicitis
An infection of the cervix, usually from gonorrhea or chlamydia, which can spread into the uterus to cause pelvic inflammatory disease.
Cervical cancer
A malignant transformation of the tissues of the cervix in women. The cervix is the area connecting the vagina to the uterus. These cancers are often caused by long-term viral infection and can be prevented with vaccination or regular screening (pap smears).
Cervical disorder
Any problem relating to the cervix in a woman. The cervix is the lowest part of the uterus (i.e. the womb) where it connects with the vagina. Common problems include inflammation or infection, growths (either cancerous or noncancerous), and cervical incompetence (where the cervix is too wide during pregnancy, potentially leading to miscarriage).
