Low cervix: If the cervix is unusually low in the vaginal canal, it means prolapse or dropping of the uterus. Occasionally, this can be caused by a mass or tumor pushing it down. More often it is due to loosening or detachment of the supportive ligaments and pelvic floor tissues.

Depends...: Cervix is really high - usually means cervix is well supported in the vagina and generally is/does not cause problems. If the cervix is really low, this could mean weakening of the pelvic support tissues and can lead to prolapse or "dropping" of the vagina or cervix. Symptom might include a feeling of heaviness or pressure in the vagina, painful intercourse, or seeing/feeling a "bulge".
