The authors made an exact investigation of the patients suffering from cervical cancer during a one-year period. Out of the data of more than 1800 patients of 101 gynaecological wards, 17,006 cases were evaluated. The present publication deals with the issue of diagnosis. Staging was controlled by data sheets, having the histological diagnosis at hand and with due respect to the most recent international staging. The way of diagnosing cervical cancer and the distribution of examinations guaranteeing definite diagnosis were investigated. The different diagnostic methods were evaluated on the basis of the expansion of the different medical interventions. The authors report on the medical interventions performed in the interest of making a definite diagnosis. Comparisons are made, on the basis of age and staging, with the earlier Hungarian and international results and findings. Finally, the authors propose that all the gynaecological examination should, at the same time, be cancer screening, and a proposal is made on the methods of doing it.
