Trend over time

Change in In situ cervical carcinoma incidence rates since the early 1990s, UK

Cervical carcinoma in situ incidence rates (European age-standardised (AS) rates Open a glossary item ) are significantly higher than the UK average in Northern Ireland and Wales, significantly lower than the UK average in England, and similar to the UK average in Scotland. [1-4]

Wales and Northern Ireland include all cases of in situ cervical carcinoma, whereas Scotland and England include only those which have been confirmed by a pathologist. This contributes to the differences seen between countries. Differences between countries may also reflect risk factor prevalence in years past.

About this data

Data is for UK, 2015, ICD-10 D06.

Cervical carcinoma in situ incidence is strongly related to age, with the highest incidence rates being in the 25 to 29 age group. In the UK in 2013-2015, on average each year less than 1% of new cases were in females aged 75 and over.[1-4] The highest incidence rates overall being in younger females - the converse pattern to most cancers.

Age-specific incidence rates rise sharply from around age 15-19 and peak in the 25-29 age group, then drop sharply. The highest rates are in the 25 to 29 age group.

For in situ cervical carcinoma, most cases are identified through the cervical cancer screening programme. Incidence increases rapidly at the age screening starts, as prevalent cases are identified, then falls rapidly at the age routine screening ends.
