Overview

According to the Centers for disease control and prevention (CDC) , cancer is the second leading cause of death in the United States after heart disease. One of every four deaths in the United States is due to cancer. Cervical cancer once was one of leading cause of mortality and cancer related death in women worldwide and in US, over the past 50 years, regular Pap smear screening caused significant drop in incidence and mortality rate of cervical cancer. Cervical neoplasia still is very common in developing countries, studies shown there is an association between age and socoeconomic status of women and incidence of infection with human papilloma virus.

Epidemiology and demographics

  • According to Centers for disease control and prevention (CDC) , cancer is the second leading cause of death in the United States after heart disease. One of every four deaths in the United States is due to cancer. [1]
  • Cervical cancer once was one of leading cause of mortality and cancer related death in women worldwide and in US, over the past 50 years, regular Pap smear screening caused significant drop in incidence and mortality rate of cervical cancer. In terms of frequency, it is ranked 14th now in the US but still is very common in least developed countries. [2]
  • In the United States, cervical cancer is more common among Hispanics, African-Americans, Asians and pascific islanders, and followed by whites. Native Alaskans and Indians have the lowest rate. Age of diagnosis is usually above 30 years old, in their midlife. Number of new cases of cervical cancer was 7.4 per 100,000 women per year and number of deaths was 2.3 per 100,000 women per year based on statistical datas collected on 2015. [3]
  • According to the American Cancer Society, estimates for cervical cancer in the United States for 2018 are: About 13,240 new cases of invasive cervical cancer will be diagnosed and about 4,170 women will die from cervical cancer. Based on recent CDC datas, States with highest rates of cervical cancers are Arkansas(10.4%), Louisiana(9.8%), Alabama(9.4%), Kentucky(9.4%), Texas(9.1%), Mississippi(9.1%), Kansas(9.0%), D.C(8.9%), Florida(8.7%), Nevada(8.7%).[3]
