What is it ? Why do you need to know about it ?
Well, Cervical cancer is ranked as the most common cancer in women in India. In India, the incidence rises in 30-34 years of age and peaks at 55-65 years of age, with an average age of 38 years ( 21-67 years). These estimates suggest that more than 80% of the sexually active women acquire genital HPV by 50 years of age. The current estimates indicate approximately 132,000 new cases are being diagnosed and 74000 deaths occur annually in India, accounting to nearly 1/3rd of the global cervical cancer deaths. Indian women face a 2.5% cumulative lifetime risk and 1.4% cumulative death risk from cervical cancer.
