Women treated for pre-cancerous cells in cervix at small risk of cervical cancer
Women treated for pre-cancerous cells in cervix at small risk of cervical cancer (January 15, 2014 - Insidermedicine) From Sweden - Women who have been treated for pre-cancerous cells in their cervix are at raised risk of cervical cancer, according to a report published in the BMJ. Researchers studied data on over 150,00 women treated for abnormal cells on cervical intraepithelial neoplasia grade 3. Over 1,000 of these women were diagnosed with invasive cervical cancer, and 147 of whom were diagnosed with vaginal cancer. Results showed that, as the women grew older, risk of cervical cancer and vaginal cancer were increased--though the overall risk was still quite low.
