ABSTRACT
A total of 3100 pap smear tests done on women who attended the Gynecological outpatient ward between the years 2018 to till date in Mamata Academy of medical sciences and MNR medical college Sangareddy, and were analyzed to find out the role of risk factors (non cytogenetic) in cervical carcinogenesis. Each woman under investigation had a clinical history, gynecological examination and pap smear. A cervical biopsy was also taken in possible cases for histopathology. The frequency of cervical cancer was found to be about 6.5% in the present study. The study revealed high parity and early marriage as predominant non- cytogenetic factors in cervical carcinogenesis.
