  • Among all diagnostic procedures, 18% are diagnosed with HSIL+, while this is the case with 66% of therapeutic procedures.
  • Around 90% of women with HSIL+ biopsy have another invasive procedure (mainly therapeutic) preformed in one year period. HSIL+ is detected in almost 90% of follow-up therapeutic procedures.
  • On average, 1,500 women per year were newly diagnosed with CIN2+ in the last years, 1,400 in the target age group 20–64 (excluding the pandemic).
