Trend over time

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

 

Cervical carcinoma in situ incidence rates (European age-standardised (AS) rates Open a glossary item) are significantly higher than the UK average in Scotland and Northern Ireland, and similar to the UK average in all other UK constituent countries.

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.

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 2014-2016, on average each year less than 1% (0%) 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.

Cervical carcinoma in situ incidence rates have decreased overall in some broad age groups in females in the UK since the early 1990s, but have increased or remained stable in others.[1-4] Rates in 20-24s have decreased by 13%, in 25-34s have increased by 67%, in 35-49s have remained stable, in 50-64s have decreased by 33%, in 65-79s have decreased by 65%, and in 80+s have decreased by 47%.
