Study: Cervical cancer models support change in approach to screening and management
Current U.S. cervical cancer screening methods are ineffective as a result of high costs and inconsistent management approaches, ultimately leading to poor compliance with recommended guidelines, according to a recent analysis in Annals of Internal Medicine. Nearly 12,000 persons are diagnosed with cervical cancer annually, with 4,000 deaths a year according to 2014 data from the American Cancer Society . And nearly $6 billion are spent annually for screening, diagnosis and precancer management, based on a study by Chesson and colleagues reported in 2012.
