In brief: Contiguity

As most cancers cells move towards the vicinity ( the rest of the uterus)first, then travel through the blood flow of the lymphatic, venous and arterial tree far from its original place.
Nowadays cervical cancer is detected early with the papanicolau test.

In brief: Cervical cancer

Cervical cancer in a woman's body spreads both directly (ie, cervix to vagina an tissue around cervix) and through the lymphatics.
Cervix cancer cannot be spread to another person. The virus that causes cervix cancer hpv can be sprea by direct contact.
