Health Indicator Report of Incidence of Cervical Cancer

Cervical cancer is the easiest gynecologic cancer to prevent with regular screening tests and followup. It also is highly curable when found and treated early.[https://www.cdc.gov/cancer/cervical/pdf/cervical_facts.pdf ^1^]

Notes

This is Healthy New Jersey 2020 objective CA-10.   Data for Whites, Blacks, and Asians/Pacific Islander include Hispanics and non-Hispanics. Race misclassification could result in an underestimate of Asian/Pacific Islander incidence and should be interpreted with caution. *NJ 2020 data are considered preliminary and should not be used in trend analyses; an approximate 10% decrease in the number of cancer cases diagnosed in 2020 compared to 2019, is partly due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Patients experienced difficulties scheduling medical appointments and cancer screening tests in 2020.

Definition

Age-adjusted incidence rate of invasive cervical cancer in females per 100,000 standard population. ICD-O-3 codes: C53.0-C53.9 (excl. types 9590-9992)

Numerator

Number of new cases of invasive cervical cancer diagnosed among females

Denominator

Total number of females in the population

Healthy People Objective: Reduce invasive uterine cervical cancer

U.S. Target: 7.2 new cases per 100,000 females (age-adjusted)
State Target: 7.2 new cases per 100,000 females (age-adjusted)

Other Objectives

'''Updated Healthy New Jersey 2020 Objective CA-10''': Reduce the age-adjusted incidence rate of invasive uterine cervical cancer in females per 100,000 standard population to 7.2 for the total population, 6.4 among Whites, 9.0 among Blacks, 9.8 among Hispanics, and 3.2 among Asians. '''Original Healthy New Jersey 2020 Objective CA-10''': Reduce the age-adjusted incidence rate of invasive uterine cervical cancer in females per 100,000 standard population to 7.2 for the total population, 7.1 among Whites, 9.0 among Blacks, 11.6 among Hispanics, and 6.3 among Asians.

How Are We Doing?

All original Healthy New Jersey 2020 (HNJ2020) targets were achieved. As of 2019, the revised HNJ2020 targets for Blacks, Hispanics, and all races/ethnicities combined had also been achieved. Although the revised target for Whites was achieved in 2020, additional years of data are needed to determine if the decline was solely due to decreased screening during the COVID-19 pandemic.
