  1. Trends in cancer of the cervix uteri in Sweden following cytological screening.

    Article - En anglais

    Trends in cervical cancer incidence following the introduction of screening have mostly been studied using cross-sectional data and not analysed separately for squamous cell cancer and adenocarcinomas.

    Using Swedish nationwide data on incidence and mortality, we analysed trends during more than 3 decades and fitted Poisson-based age-period-cohort models, and also investigated whether screening has reduced the incidence of adenocarcinomas of the cervix.

    The incidence of reported cancer in situ increased rapidly during 1958-1967.

    Incidence rates of squamous cell cancer, fairly stable before 1968, decreased thereafter by 4-6% yearly in women aged 40-64, with a much smaller magnitude in younger and older women.

    An age-cohort model indicated a stable 70-75% reduction in incidence for women born 1940 and later compared with those born around 1923.

    The incidence of adenocarcinomas doubled during the 35-year study period.

    The mortality rate increased by 3.6% before 1968 and decreased by 4.0% yearly thereafter.

    Although a combination of organized and opportunistic screening can reduce the incidence of squamous cell cancer substantially, the incidence of adenocarcinomas appears uninfluenced by screening.
