A cervical erosion is a change to the cells around the opening on the cervix, causing vaginal discharge. Glandular cells are normally only present inside the cervix. However, these cells can grow out of the cervix into the vagina, causing an embarrassing problem. They are mucus-producing cells and they can cause massive amounts of discharge if the erosion is large. This condition can be treated by a gynaecologist who can cauterise the cells, preventing the mucus being produced.
