Who gets Cervical Cancer?

In the United States, over 10,000 women can expect to be diagnosed with cervical cancer each year. Over 3,700 will die from the disease. Most of these patients aren't regularly screened with pap smears. Fortunately, in the US, screening with pap smears and colposcopy have been very effective. In developing countries, cervical cancer is a major cancer killer.
