Abstract/Summary Cervical cancer is one of the few human cancers entirely attributable to infection with a virus, human papillomavirus (HPV). It is one of the commonest cancers among women worldwide, responsible for over 250,000 deaths each year. Although chronic disease of the uterus was known in ancient times, the concept of cancer as a disorder of cell growth is relatively recent and was only confirmed with the advent of technologies for the microscopic examination of human tissue in the first half of the nineteenth century, as systematized by Virchow and others (Bracegirdle 1977).
