Cervical cancer is a form of cancer that originates in the cells lining the cervix and begins to grow out of control. The American Cancer Society estimates that 13,800 new cases will be diagnosed in 2020, and an estimated 4,290 women will die from the disease. Through early detection, pap smear testing, and effective treatment, the survival rate for affected women will increase and is often curable if diagnosed and treated early. This course will provide an overview of cervical cancer, which includes the causes and risk factors associated with disease. The prevalence amongst different age and ethnic groups will be examined, evidence-based guidelines surrounding detection, diagnosis and treatment options will be identified, and the impact of the disease on a health, social, economic level will be discussed.
