  1. Incidence of invasive cervical cancer preceded by negative screening in high-risk Alaska native women.

    Article - En anglais


    Alaska Native women experience higher invasive cervical cancer incidence and mortality rates than US whites despite a long-standing cancer screening programme including recommendations for annual Pap smears.


    To determine the frequency and results of cytological screening preceding their diagnoses, a histological and medical record review was completed for 44 of 46 Alaska Native cases of invasive cervical cancer from a defined population.

    An interval cancer (no prior dysplasia and a negative screening report within 3 years of diagnosis) was determined for 23 women.

    Mean number of negative reports during the 3- and 5-year intervals before diagnosis was 1.7 and 2.6 respectively.
