Correct at its very early stage. US will pick up the images suggesting its damaging effects and distortion to local / nearby tissues and organs.

In brief: Cervical Cancer

Transvaginal or pelvic ultrasound is usually for higher structures such as uterus and ovaries.
Cervical cancer screening is with a full pap smear exam/ cytology.
