The study of cervical cancer epidemiology is an ongoing crucial research as the disease is region dependent. Attempt at awareness measures have curbed the disease to an extent but more regional studies are required to explain the association of pathologic findings with region-dependent risk factors. This study attempts to study the prevalence of cervical dysplasia amongst women in Guwahati, Assam and to interpret the associated risk factors. Data is collected from the Out Patient Department (OPD) of the Obstetrics & Gynaecology (O & G) Department of Guwahati Medical College and Hospital, the most prominent super-specialty public hospital of the region. The sampling procedure was systematic random sampling with patients being selected as and when they arrive. Out of 496 women who visited the hospital over a period of eighteen months the study is conducted with 366, based on successful reports from Pap smears evaluated using Liquid Based Cytology technology(LBC). Chi-square test is used for statistical analysis of association. 11.7% of the respondents had precancerous symptoms. Eleven factors showed significant association with the smear status of the respondents.

Abstract


The study of cervical cancer epidemiology is an ongoing crucial research as the disease is region dependent. Attempt at awareness measures have curbed the disease to an extent but more regional studies are required to explain the association of pathologic findings with region-dependent risk factors. This study attempts to study the prevalence of cervical dysplasia amongst women in Guwahati, Assam and to interpret the associated risk factors. Data is collected from the Out Patient Department (OPD) of the Obstetrics & Gynaecology (O & G) Department of Guwahati Medical College and Hospital, the most prominent super-specialty public hospital of the region. The sampling procedure was systematic random sampling with patients being selected as and when they arrive. Out of 496 women who visited the hospital over a period of eighteen months the study is conducted with 366, based on successful reports from Pap smears evaluated using Liquid Based Cytology technology(LBC). Chi-square test is used for statistical analysis of association. 11.7% of the respondents had precancerous symptoms. Eleven factors showed significant association with the smear status of the respondents.
