Epidemiology of carcinoma in situ of the cervix.
- Jordan, Joseph A.
About this work
Joseph Jordan of Birmingham Maternity Hospital, in discussion with Geoffrey Chamberlain, Institute of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, London. Firstly, Jordan attempts to show whether or not death from squamous carcinoma of the cervix is preventable. He describes how squamous carcinoma is usually, if not always, preceded by a pre-cancerous lesion known as carcinoma in situ, and explains how regular screening by cervical cytology (Pap test) may help to reduce mortality from this disease. Explanations are also suggested which attempt to show recent research into how and why carcinoma of the cervix arises in the first place.
