Preventable fractions of cervical cancer via effective screening in the Baltic and eastern European region
A new study, led by researchers from the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) and published in The Lancet Oncology, shows that effective screening programmes could prevent an epidemic of cervical cancer in several Baltic and eastern European countries. With the immediate launch of effective screening programmes, an estimated 180 000 new cases of cervical cancer could be prevented from 2017 to 2040 in six Baltic and eastern European countries.

Breast Cancer Screening
A Working Group of 29 independent experts from 16 countries, convened by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) in November 2014, reviewed the scientific evidence and assessed the cancer-preventive and adverse effects of various methods of screening for breast cancer. This publication provides an important update of the landmark 2002 IARC Handbook on Breast Cancer Screening, in light of recent improvements in treatment outcomes for late-stage breast cancer and recent data on the effectiveness of organized screening programmes. The Working Group also considered non-mammographic imaging techniques, clinical breast examination, and breast self-examination.
