Abstract

CABRERA D, Jorge et al. CARACTERIZACIÓN DE 1.131 PACIENTES CON CÁNCER CÉRVICO-UTERINO SEGÚN ESTADIO FIGO: HOSPITAL GUILLERMO GRANT, 1999-2005. Rev. chil. obstet. ginecol. [online]. 2009, vol.74, n.1, pp.11-14. ISSN 0048-766X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-75262009000100003.

Objective: To analyze the distribution according to stage and age of women with histological cervical carcinoma confirmed diagnosis. Method: A cross sectional study of 1,131 women of the Hospital Guillermo Grant B with FIGO's classification, in the period 1999-2005. Results: From the 1,131 cases, 522 (46.1%) women correspond to Stage 0, the average age was 34.9 years; 9% were younger than 25 years of age; 40.6% were between 25-34 years old. Invasive cancer had 609 women (53.9%), average age was 51.2 years, corresponding 223 (36.6%) Stage I, 194 (31.8%) Stage II, 159 (26.1%) Stage III, and 8 (1.3%) Stage IV. The range of age in invasive stages was between 19-95 years. From the group of women with cancer, 117 (19.2%) were older than 65 years, and 4 women (0.6%) were younger than 25. Conclusion: The implementation of the National Program of early detection for cervical cancer caused that 46.1% of cases correspond to early diagnosis, contributing to the national trend of decreasing rate of mortality for this disease. There is a progressive decrease in the incidence of invasive cancer as it progresses in stages, coincidentally there is an increase in the age of these women, so that 19.2% were older than 65 years. Based on these results it is necessary to analyze the cost benefit of including women younger than 25 years and older than 65 in the screening.
