Abstract

 Worldwide, cervical cancer is the second most common and the fifth deadliest cancer in women. Approximately 80% of cervical cancers occur in developing countries. In Bangladesh, every year 17676 women are diagnosed with cervical cancer and 10364 die from the disease. It has been proved that cervical cancer is a preventable disease. Most common types of cervical cancer can be prevented by regular cytological screening program. To achieve this there must be a high rate of acceptance by the women.
