And the part closer to vagina is called ectocervix. The part between these two is called the transformation zone. Cancer is found to occur profoundly in this transformation zone.

Squamous Cell carcinoma is the predominantly occurring cervical cancer accounting to about 80%. This primitively form is called dysplasia, a precancerous condition.
