Aspirin use reduces cervical cancer risk by nearly half

the ONA take:

Aspirin use has been shown to reduce risk of cervical cancer in women who used the medication frequently and for long periods of time.

New research from Roswell Park Cancer Institute (RPCI) examined self-reported information on the frequency and duration of aspirin and/or acetaminophen use from 328 patients with cervical cancer and 1,312 controls.

Their results showed that risk of cervical cancer was reduced by 47% in frequent aspirin users, defined as those who used aspirin seven or more times a week.

Risk of cervical cancer was reduced 41% among long-term frequent users, defined as frequent use for 5 or more years. No association was found between acetaminophen use and decreased risk of cervical cancer.

Most people are more likely to take an aspirin rather than make major lifestyle changes; therefore, aspirin is an attractive cancer-prevention option.

However, the researchers caution that people should talk with their doctor before beginning an aspirin regimen.
