The Cervical Cancer Screening Program (CCSP), operated by the BC Cancer Agency, is a coordinated program of cervical cancer control. The aim of the CCSP is to reduce the number of women who develop invasive cervical cancer (incidence) and the number of women who die from it (mortality). This is done by encouraging women to. Cervical cancer is one of the world’s deadliest – but most easily preventable – forms of cancer for women, responsible for more than deaths annually, 85% of which occur in developing countries. The second edition of WHO's guidelines were launched at the World Cancer Leaders’ Summit in Melbourne, Australia on 3 December

Cervical cancer screening is an effective method for detecting abnormal cells in the cervix. The results of the test (sometimes known as a pap smear test) are used to help to provide healthcare practitioners with an accurate measure of the health of your cervix – the entrance to your womb (uterus). The most recent data on cancer screening rates are cause for concern, which we also noted in 20 As described above, although CRC screening rates have steadily risen, screening rates for cervical cancer have declined since , breast cancer screening rates have remained stable at a discouragingly low level, and uptake of lung cancer Cited by:

Cervical cancer screening began in the mid 20 th century with the introduction of the Papanicolaou test (Pap test). This procedure consists of scraping the cells of the cervix and subsequently smearing them on a glass slide to be evaluated under the microscope, a process referred to as cytological assessment. The primary risk factor for cervical cancer is human papillomavirus (HPV) infection. Most cases of cervical cancer are preventable by routine screening and by treatment of precancerous lesions.

As Pap testing became routine in this country, finding pre-invasive lesions (pre-cancers) of the cervix became far more common than finding invasive cancer.

A Pap test is commonly used to screen for cervical cancer. After certain positive Pap test results, an HPV test may be done.

An HPV test may be done with or without a Pap test to screen for cervical cancer. Screening tests for cervical cancer are being studied in clinical trials.
