AbstractThe possibility of successful screening for different gynaecological cancers is discussed against Wilson's principles for screening. Regular cervical smears satisfy the criteria for screening and can reduce deaths. The reasons for failure of cervical cancer screening in Hong Kong are highlighted. There is no evidence that screening for other gynaecological cancer is effective. The low prevalence of the other gynaecological cancers limit the cost-effectiveness of screening even if a very sensitive and specific test is available.
