Will an X-ray of the hip/pelvic area show cervical cancer?

In brief: Nope

Plain x rays of the pelvis will not show cervical cancer unless it got so advanced as to involve the pelvic bone.
You don't want to let it get to that point.

In brief: No

The cervix and cervical cancer do not show up on an x-ray.
The best test is a pap smear.

In brief: Not necessarily.

X-ray is not a screening for cervical cancer.
If a large tumor were present this could be seen with x-ray but this is not a way to check for cervical cancer. See your doctor for a pap smear.
