A new study suggests that the success of a vaccine against cervical cancer means the condition could be eliminated within 30 years.
Researchers in Scotland say the routine HPV vaccination of girls aged 12 to 13 has caused a dramatic reduction in cancer rates, almost wiping out all cases of cervical pre-cancer in young women.

They believe that its success, if duplicated on a global scale, could mean the end of cervical cancer altogether.

Girls around the UK are given the HPV vaccine to protect them against the cancer-causing HPV virus.

Scotland introduced its national HPV immunisation programme for girls aged 12 to 13 in 2008

Researchers have analysed vaccination and screening records from the last 10 years to compare cancer rates between women who were vaccinated and those who were not, and have found that the start of routine vaccination prompted a reduction of up to 89% in the presence of precancerous cells.
