Cervical Cancer Rate Rises, Women Ignoring Screenings

It is quite strange to know that despite the availability of a vaccine and screening test, cervical cancer is always found in the list of most common cancer occurring to women. In fact, it is said to be the most common cancer happening to women who are under 35 years age group.

As per official data, approximately 3,000 women get diagnosed with cervical cancer every year. Experts have tried to know the reason of the same and have found that women are not appearing for screening tests.

To authenticate their statement, experts mentioned that in 2012, almost 33% women under the age group of 25 to 29 have not appeared for smear test. Figures are even more depressing when to talk about 60 above women as they are at 15-year low.

Martin Ledwick, from Cancer Research UK, said screening is a great way to detect the cancer at an early stage. Therefore, it is very important for women to undergo regular screenings for cervical cancer.

"Although almost all women who have cervical cancer have been infected with HPV, it's quite a common infection and most people who've had it won't develop cervical cancer", said Ledwick. It is expected that the report will encourage women to undergo screenings.
