Cervical cancer mortality trends in Australia--an update.


Trends in the mortality rate due to cancer of the cervix in Australian women were reviewed for the period 1950-1984, taking into account the changes in the proportion of women who have undergone a hysterectomy. Cohort-based increases in women who were born after 1935, which had been reported previously, were observed to extend into the 40 to 44 years' age group and to continue the upward trend in women aged 30-39 years. However, for women who were less than 30 years of age there was evidence of a recent fall in the rate of cervical cancer mortality.
