Cervical Cancer Prognosis

Πηγή : http://www.news-medical.net/health/Cervical-Cancer-Prevention.aspx
Prognosis depends on the stage of the cancer. With treatment, the 5-year relative survival rate for the earliest stage of invasive cervical cancer is 92%, and the overall (all stages combined) 5-year survival rate is about 72%. These statistics may be improved when applied to women newly diagnosed, bearing in mind that these outcomes may be partly based on the state of treatment five years ago when the women studied were first diagnosed.

How cancer of the cervix develops
Cancer of the cervix can take many years to develop. Before it does, changes occur in the cells of the cervix. These abnormal cells are not cancerous, and are called cervical intra-epithelial neoplasia (CIN). CIN may also be referred to as dysplasia. Some doctors call these changes pre-cancerous. This means that the cells might develop into cancer in some women if they are not treated.
