The cervix is best visualized transvaginally.
Cervical carcinoma is usually diagnosed clinically, but sonography can show a solid mass posterior to the bladder which can be indistinguishable from a cervical fibroid. CT and MRI are used for staging purposes.
Adenoma malignum is a rare cervical neoplasm developing from the endocervical glands. In many cases, this is associated with Peutz-Jeghers. Numerous cystic areas are seen in a solid cervical mass. This is different from nabothian cysts which have no associated mass.
