Introduction/Background*Cervical cancer (CC) takes the fourth place in incidence and mortality rate in women worldwide. In Ukraine cervical cancer occupies the fifth place in the incidence and seventh place in the mortality rate from cancer in female population.
Methodology Analysis of data of Globocan 2020, National cancer registry.
Result(s)*Number of new CC cases in 2015 in Ukraine was 4166, in 2019 – 3936. Number of deaths from CC in 2015 was 1687, in 2019 – 1579.
Age-standardised incidence rate (world standard) of CC in 2015 was 8,2; in 2019 – 7,6. Age-standardised mortality rate (world standard) in 2015 was 3,1; in 2019 – 2,8.
The relative frequency of cervical cancer incidence in the structure of 10 leading cancer sites in Ukraine in 2015 was 5,9%; in 2019 – 5,4% (both 5th place). The relative frequency of CC mortality in the structure of 10 most common cancer sites in Ukraine in 2015 was 5,8%; in 2019 – 5,9% (both 7th place).
The relative frequency of cervical cancer incidence in the structure of 5 leading cancer sites in age group 18-29 years in Ukraine in 2015 was 11,8% (3rd place); in 2019 – 8,1% (4th place); in age group 30-54 years in 2015 – 13,4%; in 2019 – 12,4% (both 2nd place).
The relative frequency of cervical cancer mortality in the structure of 5 leading cancer sites in age group 18-29 years in Ukraine in 2015 was 8,4; in 2019 – 13,6% (both 3rd place); in age group 30-54 years in 2015 – 14,2%; in 2019 – 16% (both 2nd place).
In 2016 patients diagnosed with 4th stage of CC comprised 4,8%, in 2020 – 9,1%.
Main problems of cervical cancer in Ukraine are the absence of government vaccination programme and lack of women`s adherence for regular screening and treatment.
Conclusion*According to statistical analysis the incidence and mortality rate of CC in 2019 remains at the same level as in the 2015.
The number of patients with 4th stage has almost doubled in 2020 compared to 2016.
In 2015 CC occupied the 3rd place in the incidence of 5 leading cancer sites in age group 18-29 years, in 2019 this pathology ranks the 4th place, yielding to breast cancer.
