Cervical cancer is a malignant disease of the female reproductive system and is one of the most common malignant diseases affecting the female population. It is ranked second in the number of women with breast cancer in Republic of North Macedonia and third in the world. Thanks to preventive vaccination and PAP screening, it has a positive effect on reducing the number of newly diagnosed and deceased patients with cervical cancer.

In 2016, 47 women died of cervical cancer in Republic of North macedonia, and in 2017, died 30 women.
