Abstract

Cervical cancer is the third most common malignancy in women and a major cause of morbidity and mortality particularly in developing countries. In Switzerland cervical cancer is nowadays a relative rare cancer with annually 230 new cases. Decreasing incidence, observed in all age groups, is certainly due to improved primary and secondary prevention such as comprehensive screening programs and in future with vaccination against human papilloma viruses. Improvements in the treatment of cervical cancer led to a reduction of mortality. This review article summarizes the current standard of care with and the available treatment modalities.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
