Cervical Cancer

In Australia, cervical cancer has become less frequent. Approx 400 patients are diagnosed every year in Australia, which is a decline of 34% from 2002. This fortunate and very encouraging data are the result of the cervical (PAP smear) screening program that has been introduced to Australia some 20 years ago. We also hope that the cervical cancer incidence will further decline due to the effects of the vaccination program that has been established in 2007. Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) causes cervical cancer and smoking co-contributes to its development. Find out more information about the treatment and outcomes of cervical cancer.

Vulval & Vaginal Cancer

In Australia, vulval cancer is uncommon with only 400 women newly diagnosed every year. The incidence of vulval cancer has been rising by 25% since 2002 but its precursors (precancerous stages) have more than doubled.
