In brief: The most
Common cervical cancer is squamous, but there are adenocarcinomas as well.
Some aggresively grow locally, some are slower. A few are capable of distant travel. Early detection and treatment are key to successful treatmnet and cure.

In brief: Yes
The majority of the cases are invasive squamous cell cancers, usually arising from the ectocervix.
10-15% may be adenocarcinoma arising from endocervical mucous producing glandular cells. There are rare mixed cell types, neuroendocrine tumors, and sarcomas, lymphomas, or melanomas.
