Cervical cancer is the second most common cancer among women worldwide and also in Angola. Its highest incidence occurs in women between 45 and 55 years of age; the main etymological factor is the infection with human papilloma virus (HPV), whose DNA is detectable in more than 99% of cases. This article review demonstrates some socio-cultural, socioeconomic, ethnic, and linguistic factors as influencing the increase of cervical cancer cases in Angola.
