Cervical cancer: Support research to prevent, diagnose and treat this disease

Last updated: 23/07/2014

Why this research is needed

Mother and daughterOver 3,000 women are diagnosed with cervical cancer in the UK each year. It is the most common cancer in women under 35 in the UK.

The screening programme can prevent many cervical cancers from developing in the first place and advances in treatment have also helped drive improvements for cervical cancer.

Two thirds of women now live for more than five years after diagnosis, but more needs to be done to beat this disease.

The impact of our research

Our researchers played an important role in finding the connection between the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) and cervical cancer and also helped to develop screening programmes for the disease. We supported research that made it possible to develop the HPV vaccine, including large clinical trials to assess its safety.

With your help we can continue pioneering research to prevent, diagnose and treat cervical cancer.
