According to a survey carried out by Jo's Cervical Cancer Trust, just under a quarter (22.7%) of women are too embarrassed to attend smear tests and over two thirds don't think the tests reduce a women's risk of getting cervical cancer. In the United States, 12,820 women are diagnosed with cervical cancer each year and 4,120 women die from the disease, according to the National Cancer Institute.
Meanwhile, many of those women who are dying from cervicalcancer are above age of 65, a cut-off point where the cancer screening guidelines no longer recommend women with cervixes be regularly screened for cervicalcancer.
Dr. Ahmedin Jemal, vice president of surveillance and health services research at the American Cancer Society, said the society's studies have found that people in areas where cancer deaths are higher than average suffer from a variety of problems that make these deaths more likely.

Differences in death rates should also be a red flag that certain communities aren't getting the benefits of screening, early detection, and specialized treatments that others are, he says-especially for cancers with normally high survival rates, like breast and prostate cancers. With routine screening, cervicalcancer is preventable. The new death rate for black women in the USA is on part with that of developing countries. Most cases are caused by sexually transmitted infections with human papillomavirus (HPV), for which there is a vaccine. Every day in the United Kingdom nine women are diagnosed with cervicalcancer, and three women will die from the disease. Cervical cancer vaccines exist, and the disease is slow spreading, easily detectable, and treatable-when women have access to adequate medical care. Surprisingly, new research from the Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) Research Network found that a subset of tumors did not show evidence of HPV infection, confirming that some cervicalcancers are caused by genetic and other factors. Among women, particularly, HPV can cause cervicalcancer.
