Comparison of liquid based cytology vs conventional pap smear in cervical cancer screening in low resource setting
Author(s): Dr. Tavleen Kaur, Dr. Sangeeta Pahwa and Dr. Menka Khanna
Abstract: Cervical screening is the process of detecting and removing abnormal tissue or cells in the cervix before cervical cancer develops. By aiming to detect and treat cervical neoplasia early on, cervical screening aims at secondary prevention of cervical cancer. In low-resource countries like India, decisions regarding cervical screening are made based upon available resources and thus it is often not possible to offer cervical screening as frequently. The greatest impact on cervical cancer reduction appears to result from screening women aged 30-39 years, so resources may be directed to this age group. In this study, comparison of Conventional pap smear (CPS) and Liquid based cytology (LBC) will be studied and how it will aid in cervical screening in low resource setting.
