Furthermore, this is, of course, good news for physicians and therefore for patients. Hopefully, no "false negatives" will occur in which someone receives unjustified reassurance and therefore does not need care.
Edit: Naturally I understand that poverty, personal hygiene, medical infrastructure, knowledge among the population and illiteracy do not help. If you look purely at the numbers of the population, then it is logical that every disease is more common in India and China than elsewhere. In this case, again besides there are no more sick people in India because of the above factors. Then I have cultural customs; climate / weather and flora / fauna are not even taken into account. From what I met at the WHO: https://www.who.int/cancer/country-profiles/ind_en.pdf, the number of women with breast or cervical cancer in India is much higher than other forms of cancer. [1
Overall, it remains difficult to assess whether India has a relatively high, low or medium incidence of cervical cancer if you compare it with the rest of the world or countries with similar prosperity. Think for yourself this is the combination of a fairly high rate of disease per 100,000 women, ie. one quarter of the world's female population.
Back in the Netherlands: About 4 women in every 50,000 are affected by the disease here https://www.rivm.nl/bevol…derhalskanker#% 20voor comes
