Globally, cervical cancer is the second most common type of cancer and the second leading cause of cancer death among women. The incidence varies geographically because of differences in the availability of screening programs and access to them. For example, in Africa, cervical cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths among women, but in the United States, where screening is more prevalent, cervical cancer is not among the top 10 causes of cancer deaths. In recent decades, the incidence of cervical cancer, as well as the mortality associated with the disease, has markedly decreased.
