The Changing Face of Cervical Cancer in China
Date:9/24/2013

Durham, NC (PRWEB) September 24, 2013

Over the last few decades, China, like the majority of the world, has seen a steady decrease in deaths from cervical cancer, due in large part to screening efforts and improved treatment. However, the disease still poses a significant threat to women, as it remains the third most common and among the most deadly cancers in women worldwide, with a third of new cases occurring in China. Moreover, the incidence of the disease has increased among young women. These trends signal the need for a large-scale, thorough assessment of the cervical cancer landscape in China – a database that did not exist until recently.

To address this need, Professor Ding Ma and colleagues at the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Huazhong University Tongji Medical College have conducted a decade-long, retrospective, multicenter study aimed at clarifying the changing patterns of care and long-term survival rates that have accompanied the shifting demographics of cervical cancer patients in China. The study, which is featured in the latest issue of The Oncologist, included 10,012 patients diagnosed with cervical cancer between the years 2000 and 2009 and presents an analysis of the trends in clinical characteristics, therapeutic modalities, and treatment outcomes among the participants.

One expected result of their analysis was that patients were 5-10 years younger than they were prior to 2000 (an observation supported by several other studies). The authors speculate that this trend is due to the increasing tendency toward earlier sexual behaviors, presumably leading to more frequent transmission of the sexually transmitted virus that causes cervical cancer in young adults. When looking at regional distribution, the team discovered that a greater proportion of patients came from rural areas. Urban patients tended to be diagnosed at a significantly younger age, and they lived longer overall compar
