A lump in the cervix may be benign (not of major concern, like a polyp) or cancerous or a cancer-in-situ (nascent stage for cancer). The appearance of the lump says a lot. For example, a smooth soft swelling may be a polyp, whereas an irregular friable thing is more suggestive of cancer.
I need to know the age of your fiancée because in young women it is more often benign.
I am sure that if the physician suspected anything serious, he/she must have done a biopsy for confirmation. It would provide an answer to your questions.
If you could send me further details about the lump, then I would be in a better position to help you. I would also like to know if a biopsy has been scheduled and the results of a biopsy (if one has been taken)
I thank you again for submitting your question. I hope you find my response to be both helpful and adequate. If you have any additional concerns regarding your question, I would be happy to address them.
