Abstract:
Globally cervix cancer accounted for an estimated 530,000 new cancer cases worldwide and 275,000 deaths in 2008. In Ireland there are appropriately 320 new cases diagnosed annually. Unfortunately in countries that do not have access to cervical cancer screening, cervical cancer remains the second most common type of cancer. Global incidence and mortality rates depend upon the presence of screening programmes for cervical precancer and cancer and of human papillomavirus vaccination. These interventions have seen a 75 % decrease in the incidence and mortality of cervical cancer over the past 50 years in developed countries. (BMJ 1999)
