In recent years, with the development of gene research, it has been found that the expression level of miRNA is related to the pathogenesis and progress of cervical cancer. MiRNA plays the role of oncogene and/or tumor suppressor gene in the occurrence and progression of cancer. The analysis of the expression spectrum and level of microRNA in cervical cancer can not only explore the correlation between microRNA and the occurrence and development of cervical cancer, but also provide new ideas for the diagnosis, treatment and prognosis of cervical cancer.
