Studies Suggest Link between Cervical Cancer and Age of Women

New study published in the Lancet Public Health reports on December 19, 2017, reported that incidence of cervical cancer in women may drastically increase with age.

Scientists at Queen Mary University, London, have developed a model to explore the incidence of cervical cancer in England. The model included the effects of changing cervical screening coverage, introduction of both HPV primary screening, and the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine.

According to the model, cervical cancer is expected to shift dramatically by 2040 from its status as the most common cancer in women under the age of 35. Rate of older age women suffering from cervical cancer is expected to be high as compared to the younger women. The eradication of the cancer among younger women, born after 1991, who have benefited from the HPV vaccination program in 2008, is firmly on the horizon. However, it is expected to reduce by 75% in young women by 2040. Women between the age group of 50 – 64 are expected to suffer a 62% increase in incidence leading to increasing mortality by 143%.

“We used a novel method to estimate cervical cancer incidence rates up to 2040. It combines three levels of modelling making it very flexible. In contrast to a microsimulation model, our model can take into account how year of birth affects risk of cervical cancer throughout a woman’s life,” said Dr Alejandra Castanon, Queen Mary University.

According to Women’s Health Diagnostic Test Market report published by Coherent Market Insights, increasing demand for early stage diagnosis of cancerous diseases needs new rapid diagnostic tests and imaging system, which can efficiently diagnosis the disease at early stage to avoid further complications. These statistics are considered to be a wake-up call for prevention of cervical cancer. It reports that primary HPV screening in reducing is important to eliminate risk of the disease among women born before 1991. Studies also warn that delays in rolling it out will only worsen the burden of disease among this age group, and expanding screening coverage will continue to be a critical challenge and priority.
