  Abstract 

Purpose:
Cervical cancer is cancer that starts in the cervix, the lower part of the uterus (womb) that opens at the top of the vagina.It is the third most common type of cancer in women. Cervical cancers start in the cells on the surface of the cervix. Most cervical cancers are from squamous cells. It starts as a precancerous condition called dysplasia. This precancerous condition can be detected by a Pap smear and is 100% treatable. It can take years for precancerous changes to turn into cervical cancer. The Papanicolaou test (also called Pap smear, Pap test, cervical smear, or smear test) is a screening test used to detect potentially precancerous and cancerous processes in the endocervical canal (transformation zone) of the female reproductive system.The test aims to detect potentially precancerous changes (called cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) or cervical dysplasia), which are usually caused by sexually transmitted human papillomaviruses. The present study was planned in the direction to evaluate.
Method:
In the present work, overall 50 patients of age group between 2050 yrs were selected to study their abnormal pap smear reports in relation to socioeconomic status, smoking, parity, and oral contraceptive and their relationship with abnormal cellular changes. So the patients were randomly selected for Pap smear from IPD or OPD of prasuti tantra and stri roga department of sdmca Hassan.
Result:
Out of 50 patients,10 patients belongs to higher class,20 patients belongs to middle class,10 patients belongs lower middle class and 10 patients belongs to lower class.
Conclusion:
Cervical cancer is ranked as the most frequent cancer in women in India. India has a population of approximately 365.71 million women above 15 years of age, who are at risk of developing cervical cancer. Getting regular Pap smears can help detect precancerous changes, which can be treated before they turn into cervical cancer. Pap smears effectively spot such changes, but they must be done regularly.Middle class women are more prone to this disease.PREVENTION IS BETTER THAN CURE.
