Как образуются наботовы cysts?
The cervix is a 2-3 cm organ connecting the uterus and
vagina. Inside the cervix passes the cervical canal, which
lined with a special layer. This layer of cells, called
cylindrical epithelium, has glands. They excrete cervical
secret or mucus. Under certain conditions, outlets
этих желез закупориваются, и образуется наботова киста шейки uterus.
There are 2 main reasons for the appearance of such cysts:
- Age changes
The vaginal part of the cervix is lined with epithelium that does not contain

day of the menstrual cycle. This процесс контролируется гормонами.
