|Abstract: ||Cancer of the cervix (Ca Cx) is the commonest gynecological malignancy among women in Uganda contributing about 80% of all female malignancies. The incidence rate is 40:100 000.
It is the leading cause of cancer related deaths in females in Uganda. Unfortunately 80% of the patients present late and this makes treatment outcomes unsatisfactory. Most patients can only be treated palliatively. It is therefore important that the disease be detected in early stages so as to improve outcome.|
