Cervical cancer is the second most frequent malignant neoplasm in women after breast cancer. Women aged between 30-40 are affected most often, but recently the disease has become increasingly prevalent in younger age groups. Over 1000 women are diagnosed with cervical cancer in Hungary every year, and about 500 women die of the disease annually. Unfortunately, most of these women never participated in screening examinations.
Cervical cancer remains symptomless for a long time, as symptoms only develop late in the course of the disease. Abnormal bleeding and unusual discharge may raise attention to the disease. During screening, lesions may be detected that are either premalignant lesions or early stage cancer before the symptoms develop. Almost 100% of cancers diagnosed at an early stage can be cured. If the disease had already developed, complex treatment is more effective the earlier the disease is diagnosed.
