The Swedish Cervical Screening Registry contains information regarding the screening program for prevention of cervical cancer including cervical cytology samples (cytologic analysis, HPV-analysis or both) and tissue samples for histopathological investigation from relevant locations in addition to invitations to taking screening tests.
The purpose of the registry is to improve the prevention of cervical cancer by providing an evidence base for evaluating and coordinating efforts to reduce incidence and mortality rates for cervical cancer, and to reduce adverse side effects of preventative interventions.
The registry covers all women resident in Sweden. Women aged 23-50 are currently called in every third year, and women aged 50-60 every fifth year, to organised screening.
Age 10 and up.
The registry contains 57 million information items (5 million histopathologies, 15 million invitations, 245,000 HPV tests and 36 million cervical cytologies (Pap tests)). There were 1,167,030 Pap tests taken in 2014, 1,148516 in 2013 and 1,144,487 in 2012.
1,167,030 Pap tests, 100,584 HPV tests, 1,022,661 invitations and 149,472 cervical histopathologies were registered for the whole of Sweden in 2014.
About 99–100 percent.
