Know more about Cervical Erosion

Cervical erosion is a condition where squamous epithelium of the ectocervix is replaced by columnar epithelium which is continuous with the endocervix.

Cervix has different types of cells in the outside (vaginal portion) than it does on the inside (cervical canal). Normally, columnar epithelium cells are present inside of the cervix whereas squamous epithelial cells are present outside the cell. When the columnar cells appear on the outside of the cervix, they get in contact with the squamous cells and form a transformation zone. It appears as a red inflamed patch at the neck of the cervix.
