Cervical Cancer

JAMA. 2005;294(8):893. doi:10.1001/jama.294.8.893-b

A new report finds that high rates of cervical cancer are indicators of larger health system concerns that may include access to medical care, cultural issues, and factors that affect communicating health information to certain populations. Released by the National Cancer Institute, Excess Cervical Cancer Mortality: A Marker for Low Access to Health Care in Poor Communities indicates that improvements are needed in cervical cancer education and screening, treatment, and related health care for women at risk (http://crchd.nci.nih.gov/meetings/Excess%20CervCanMort.pdf).
