Uterine cervical cancer is the most frequent female malignancy in Korea, This
investigation was carried out in order to identify factors associated with cervical cancer and
to quantify the relative risk of these factors by surveying a large nationwide series.
This report is based on an analysis of 2,277 cases of cervical cancer diagnosed and treated
during 7 years period from January 1976 to December 1982 at 23 hospitals representing all
parts of the country. Staging of the cancers was under the auspices of the Korean Association
of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. Stage Ib accounted for the largest number (26(10) of
total 2,205 cases of cervicel cancer. The most common age group was from 40 to 49 years

widows(l2%) as compared to controls(1.9%). Vaginal bleeding was the most common chief
complaint. Seventy-eight percent of the cancer was detected by pap smear, 87% by punch
biopsy, 21% by colposcopy and 6(10 of cases by conization. In histologic type, squamous cell
carcinoma was most common(93.4%). Surgical procedures were performed in 1,234
