The purpose of this study is to determine whether the presence of human papillomavirus (HPV) and certain chemical substances (biomarkers) in cervical cells can help identify which women with a cytologic diagnosis of AGC have a benign condition and which have a pre-cancerous condition or an invasive cancer that requires surgical removal. (This is a non-treatment study – specimen submission only).
