    There are different types, but the most commone type, which accounts for over 90 percent of cervical cancers, is the so-called squamous cell carcinoma. There are a number of rarer varieties, like adenocarcinoma, but squamous cell carcinoma is the one we normally mean when we refer to the generic term “cervical cancer.”
