Thanks for reference.
The bulky cervix with heterogeneous attenuation could be a simple infection in the cervix (cervicitis) or could be malignancy. You should go for PAP smear or punch biopsy of the cervix to reach the final diagnosis. If it comes out infection only then antibiotic course will be the only required treatment. In case of malignancy, treatment depends on the stage of the disease.
