Abstract

All cancer combined did not appear to be more frequent in first degree relatives of women with cervical cancer diagnosis, but haemolymphatic malignancies, a minor part of the cancer burden, may be overrepresented in relatives of women with cervical cancer, pointing to a pathogenic role of familial e.g. hereditary, immunosuppression.
