The King’s College study, which looked at 2,231 cases between 2001 and 2005, found high rates of squamous cell cervical cancer in woman aged 25-64 were linked to deprivation, smoking and teenage pregnancy rates. Of those studied, Lambeth PCT had the highest incidence rate of the disease, which translates to 11.6 per 100,000.
