About 800 thousand new cases of cervical cancer (CC) are predicted and it is expected that about 460 thousand women will die from this pathology, according to the forecasts of the International Agency for Research on Cancer in 2040.
Aim Evaluate epidemiological situation of cervical cancer in Kazakhstan for 2009–2018.
Materials and Methods The research material was data from the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Kazakhstan – annual form No.7 and 35 regarding CC for 2009–2018 – incidence, mortality, early diagnosis, neglect, morphological verification.
Results and Discussion For 2009–2018, 16,441 new cases of CC were registered in the republic for the first time and 6,461 women died from this disease. The research of the study period reveals a trend: early diagnosis indicators (specific weight of patients with I-II stage) improved from 79.8% (2009) to 88.1% in 2018, and accordingly the specific weight of neglected patients significantly decreased with stage III (from 15.4% to 8.9%) and with stage IV (from 3.4% to 2.7%).
Conclusion An analysis of epidemiology in CC revealed an improvement in morphological verification and early diagnosis, a decrease in neglect and mortality rates, which is undoubtedly associated with regular anti-cancer activities in Kazakhstan, in particular CC screening.
