We explored the correlation between single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and susceptibility to cervical cancer (CC) in a Xinjiang Uygur population. Ten SNPs in eight miRNA-regulated genes were selected for analysis. Odds ratios (ORs) and 95% confidence intervals (95% CIs) were calculated using unconditional logistic regression analysis. Multivariate logistic regression analysis was used to detect correlations between SNPs and CC. We found that minor allele “C” of rs512715 in NEAT1 was associated with an increased risk of CC in the allele, codominant, dominant, overdominant and log-additive models. Minor allele “C” of rs4777498 in CELF6 was associated with an increased risk of CC in the recessive model. Minor allele “C” of rs3094 in RNASE4 was associated with increased risk of CC in the allele, dominant and log-additive models. In clinical stage III/IV CC patients, minor allele “C” of rs3094 in RNASE4 and minor allele “C” of rs8004334 in JDP2 were associated with increased risk. In subtype squamous carcinoma CC patients, minor allele “C” of rs512715 in NEAT1 and minor allele “C” of rs3094 in RNASE4 were associated with increased risk. In subtype adenocarcinoma CC patients, minor allele “C” of rs3094 in RNASE was associated with increased risk.
