Current Care Guideline «Kohdunkaulan, emättimen ja ulkosynnytinten solumuutokset»1 and Summary in Finnish «Kohdunkaulan, emättimen ja ulkosynnytinten solumuutokset»2
Annually approximately 160 new cervical cancers are diagnosed in Finland. Screening has decreased both incidence and mortality by 80%. Both primary HPV-testing and Pap smear can be used in screening. In the future HPV vaccination will decrease the number of cervical cancers. Abnormal findings in Pap smears indicate management. LSIL lesions are followed up especially among young women and HSIL lesions treated. Follow-up after treatment should be reliably arranged, because increased risk of cancer remains even after treatment.
