Cervical Cancer

Cervical cancer is one of the most prevalent cancers affecting women globally. Cervical cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths for women worldwide. The worldwide incidence of cervical cancer is approximately 510,000 new cases annually, with approximately 288,000 deaths. It is estimated that around 83 percent of all the new cases of cervical cancer and 85 percent of all the deaths occur in the developing countries.

The World Health Organization estimates that a crude incidence rate of cervical cancer in Nepal is 24.2 per 100,000 women per year, with 3,504 new cases diagnosed every year and 1,872 deaths

Cervical cancer ranks as the first most frequent cancer among women in Nepal. Cervical cancer is one of the easiest cancers to prevent, with regular screening tests and follow-up. Cervical screening helps to find cancer at an early stage. When abnormal tissue or pre-cancerous cells are found early, cervical cancer is easy to prevent. By the time symptoms appear, cancer may have manifested itself and begun to spread. Due to poor access to preventive screening and treatment services, a vast number of cervical cancer deaths occur unnecessarily. Awareness regarding cervical cancer is of much importance to our society.

Engaging with the community is necessary in order to raise awareness in public about cervical cancer.
