      Abstract

      Cervical cancer is a major health issue worldwide, with 500 000 new cases each year (Parkin et
      al., 2001). Women who die of cervical cancer lose on average 26 years of life, which is
      considerably greater than the average years of life lost to breast cancer (18.9 years; Horner et al.,
      2009). Cervical cancer is one of the few cancers that are preventable through screening, and
      population-based screening for cervical cancer can reduce incidence and mortality rates of cervical
      cancer by 80% (Antilla et al., 2004). Cytological screening by smear test followed by diagnostic
      colposcopy allows for early detection of pre-cancerous lesions and treatment, which may stop the
      progression from cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) to invasive cervical cancer.
