In brief: CANCER CAN RECUR

Like any cancer, cervical cancer can recur in same place (local recurrence) or 'pop up' in a distant place (metastatic recurrence).
Therefore close surveillance is recommended for cervical cancer with frequent pap smears/exams/scans. If the cervix has been totally removed then local recurrence is less likely but still possible.

In brief: Yes

If a small focus of carcinoma of the cervix is removed, and the cervix is not removed, the remaining cervical tissue could develop carcinoma at an other site.
