In addition, an analysis of the corrected rates over the decade revealed that white women's rates of death from cervical cancer decreased by 0.8 percent per year, compared with an annual decrease of 3.6 percent in black women.
The news comes one day after a study in the journal, Cancer, shows while cervical cancer is down, mortality more prevalent than previously thought.
Between 1980 and 2014, more than 19 million Americans died of cancer. "We have screenings that are great, but many women in America are not getting them", said Dr. Kathleen M. Schmeler, an associate professor of gynecologic oncology at the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in an interview with The New York Times. About 4,210 of those women will not survive their battle. Eating foods rich in beta-carotene, folic acid, Vitamins C and E and lycopene can help boost the immune system, which in turn is good for the well-being of the cervix.
The mortality rate due to cancer is falling nationwide, but worrisome pockets of deadly malignancy persist - and in some places have worsened - in regions throughout the country, according to the first-ever county-by-county analysis of cancer deaths across the United States. Eighty percent of all people age 50 and younger will get HPV at some point in their lives. Cancer of the cervix - the neck of the womb - affects women of all ages, but it is most common in those women aged between 30 to 45 years.

That caused statistics for African American women to be 77 percent higher than before and 47 percent higher for Caucasian women. "Women should not be getting it, let alone dying from it". Diagnosis of cervical cancer is done by Pap Smear Tests, Colposcopy, HPV Testing, Endocervical Curettage (ECC).
Here's the reality about cervical cancer: it's preventable.
Cancer is a group of diseases involving abnormal growth of cells with the potential to spread to other parts of the body.
Interestingly, a subset of eight cervical cancers were mostly HPV-negative and had molecular similarities to endometrial cancers. Symptoms of cervical cancer include bleeding between periods, bleeding after intercourse, bleeding in post-menopausal women, pain during intercourse, vaginal discharge tinged with blood, and odor to the discharge and pelvic pain. "It still has a stigma". At the time, the vaccine was not approved for use in males and there was insufficient evidence for vaccinations beyond the age of 18. The latest recommendations from the CDC and ACIP indicate that only two doses are needed if started prior to age 15 and those 15 and older will need three doses. Although Andrews will need to have regular checkups to make sure the cancer does not return, her doctors "are cautiously optimistic that she's in the clear", Emily Kaplan, the reporter who interviewed Andrews, told Sports Illustrated.
