Cervical cancer develops in the lower part of the uterus, the organ of the female apparatus where the embryo is received and develops during pregnancy. In this paper we investigate the possibility to automatically detect the presence of cancerous cells and to predict of the stage of the cancerous lesion of the uterine cervix by exploiting images of cervical cells captured by the microscope. We extract a set of numerical features from each images and we build supervised machine learning models to diagnose the cervix cancer. The experimental analysis show that the proposed method is promising in distinguish between healthy and cancerous cells and to detect also high and low-grade squamous intraepithelial lesions.
