Cervical affects about 16 per 100,000 women per year and kills about 9 per 100,000 per year. Approximately 80% of cervical cancers occur in developing countries and worldwide, in 2008, it was estimated that there were 473,000 cases of cervical cancer, and 253,500 deaths per year. I debated for years with uterine cancer experts at international conferences in Europe, Asia, and the US about where cancer in situ of the breast and cervix were real cancers or not. The short version, in my opinion, is that cancer is cancer. If it is localized and dormant, it is still real cancer. It has just not spread. From my research, these cancers have a propensity to spread; they may not if the tumor environment is healthy. The cells that are dominant cancer, or healthy cells that then get damaged DNA, then these cells mutate to cancer, both these types of cancer are very apt to spread if the micro-environment is toxic. Other factors that cause cancer activation are cells that are: inflamed, acidic, hypoxic, and with chemical imbalances (like bad estrogens and not enough progesterone), like exposure to heavy metals, hydrocarbons and other carcinogens. Like Bob Beck’s book, the body electric, the electrical charges of the cells and cell environment are important determinant for health or disease. It is chemistry that determines the electrical components of the body electric. What all this means is that there are tumor microenvironments that cause activation or development of cancer cells or allow it to stay inactive. In carcinoma in situ, cancerous cells are limited to the surface area of the cervix.
