Cervical carcinoma incidence patterns in the U.S. vary by race, age, and stage. Changes in screening practices, endocervical sampling, and nomenclature and improvements in treatment resulted in an increasing incidence of in situ cervical squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) during the early 1990s and a corresponding decline in invasive SCC incidence. Despite the rising incidence of adenocarcinoma in situ (AIS), invasive adenocarcinoma rates have not yet been noted to have declined. In black women, AIS incidence remains low, and invasive cervical adenocarcinoma incidence continues to rise with age, reflecting either no effect from screening or a differential disease etiology.
