This article reviews the current data on human papillomavirus as the cause of most cervical cancer cases, data on the recently approved human papillomavirus vaccines, and updated information concerning the Bethesda System for interpretation of Papanicolaou test results. Current recommendations for surgical treatment, concurrent chemotherapy, and radiation therapy and recent advances in systemic therapy for advanced or metastatic cervical cancer are reviewed.
