Impending changes which will see screenings look for the cancer-causing HPV virus, are being blamed for the backlog.

Just after two years, with only 6 new cases per 100,000 women annually, cervical cancer would be legitimately considered as rare cancer in Australia.

The study predicted that annual cases in Australia would drop to four in 100,000 by 2035 - a potential elimination threshold, the researchers suggested.

The study also highlights the magnitude of maintaining the cervical screening regimen in Australia, which recently experienced the biennial pap smear getting replaced by HPV screening every 5 years. Of course, these figures rely on screening and vaccination rates remaining stable in the upcoming decades.

Wendy Goddard, whose daughter Zoe, from Stowupland, died aged 27 from cervical cancer in 2016, said a quick turnaround on smear tests was vital in getting prompt treatment.

Elon Musk: Tesla boss mocks USA regulator days after settlement
Under terms of the settlement , Tesla and Musk will each pay a $20 million fine, and Musk must give up his role as chairman. After the now infamous tweet, shares in Tesla sunk over 2% just hours after sending it out on the social platform.

As reported by Newsweek, Australia cut the rate of cervical cancer in half after it announced a national screening program in 1991 to help catch the cancer early.

In 2007, Australia became one of the first countries in the world to introduce an HPV vaccination programme for girls, which was later extended to boys. By 2100 there would be just three deaths per million women (compared to 21 deaths per million, or about 260 deaths each year today).

"We've been leading the way in cervical cancer control for many years and we'll be sharing our research and approaches with the rest of the world as part of a global push to eliminate this highly preventable cancer".

However, they warned "elimination is only likely if HPV vaccination and screening continue at their current rates".

For the same year the CDC reported 12,845 new cases of cervical cancer; for every 100,000 women eight were diagnosed with cervical cancer, making cervical cancer the 20th most common cancer in the US.

Senate plans procedural vote on Kavanaugh in bitter confirmation fight
Democrats want a briefing from the FBI about the investigation, but Republicans declined that request. White House counsel Don McGahn has also been shepherding Kavanaugh through the nomination process.

Ian Frazer, immunologist who co-invented the Gardasil "HPV" vaccine, said that he never imagined his creation would have such a profound impact so soon, according to The Guardian. "Those who have previously had the pap test should have their next cervical screening test two years after their last pap test, after which point they can move to five-yearly screening". Have you or a loved one battled with cervical cancer? Cervical cancer affects more indigenous women, people of African descent, and people living in less developed areas, as well those with lower socio-economic, educational, and income levels.

Cervical cancer screening is available in nearly all the countries of the region, with Pap tests most commonly used.

With Sydney playing host to the International Papilloma Virus Conference this week, Canfell will now present the findings of the Cancer Council's research to her counterparts in the global medical community in the hope of kick-starting similar programs in other nations.

Earlier this year, World Health Organization director Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus called on the global community to act against cervical cancer, one of the "most preventable forms of cancer as long as it is detected early and managed effectively".
