Virginia

Five-Year Summary: July 2013 to June 2018

Tables and graphs report on cancer screening services provided through the program in a recent 5-year period. The data represent clinical services funded directly through the NBCCEDP as reported in the April 2019 submission of the NBCCEDP Minimum Data Elements (MDE).

National aggregate data are typically used to report results from the program and as a standard to compare results of grantee programs. Comparing data across grantee programs is not advised due to extensive variation across programs. For information on interpreting the data, refer to Screening Program Data. For information on the program, refer to About the Program.

Cervical Cancer Screening

This pie chart illustrates the distribution of 8,329 women receiving an NBCCEDP-funded Pap test from July 2013 to June 2018 by race and ethnicity.

*Slices too small to view were combined into the Other Races slice (0.9%) and include: American Indian/Alaska Native (0.3%) and Multiracial (0.6%).

This pie chart illustrates the distribution of 8,329 women receiving an NBCCEDP-funded Pap test from July 2013 to June 2018 by age.

*Slices too small to view were combined into the Other Ages slice (0.2%) and include: Younger than 30 (< 0.1%), 30 to 39 (0.1%), and 65 and older (0.1%). Differences are due to rounding.

Category Number
Pap tests provided 9,714
Pap tests with abnormal results [1] 281
Percentage of Pap tests with abnormal results 2.9
Age-adjusted percentage [2] 4.2
Cervical cancers or premalignant cervical lesions [3] 187
CIN1 or LSIL 112
CIN2 or worse [4] 75
Rate of CIN2 or worse detected per 1,000 Pap tests [4] 7.7

3: Includes LSIL, HSIL, cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN)1, CIN2, CIN3, carcinoma in situ (CIS), and invasive cervical cancer.

4: Includes HSIL, CIN2, CIN3, CIS, and invasive cervical cancer.

Table includes only NBCCEDP-funded Pap tests. An additional 107 women, not included above, were diagnosed with LSIL, HSIL, CIN1, CIN2, CIN3, CIS, or invasive cervical cancer through the NBCCEDP following a Pap test funded through another source.

Breast Cancer Screening

This pie chart illustrates the distribution of 18,587 women receiving an NBCCEDP-funded mammogram from July 2013 to June 2018 by race and ethnicity.

*Slices too small to view were combined into the Other Races slice (0.8%) and include: American Indian/Alaska Native (0.3%) and Multiracial (0.5%).

This pie chart illustrates the distribution of 18,587 women receiving an NBCCEDP-funded mammogram from July 2013 to June 2018 by age.

*Slices too small to view were combined into the Other Ages slice (0.2%) and include: Younger than 40 (0.1%) and 65 and older (0.1%).

Breast Results and Outcomes
Category Number
Mammograms provided 30,788
Mammograms with abnormal results [1] 3,561
Percentage of mammograms with abnormal results 11.6
Age-adjusted percentage [2] 11.3
Breast cancers detected [3] 402
Rate of breast cancers detected per 1,000 mammograms 13.1
Age-adjusted rate per 1,000 mammograms [2] 13.1

1: Abnormals include mammogram results of: suspicious abnormality, highly suggestive of malignancy, and assessment incomplete (further imaging studies or film comparisons required).

2: Adjusted to the age distribution of NBCCEDP participants 40 years of age and older having mammograms performed in calendar year 2000.

3: Breast cancers include invasive breast cancer, ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS), and other in situ excluding lobular carcinoma in situ (LCIS).

Table includes only NBCCEDP-funded mammograms provided to women age 40 and older. An additional 150 women, not included above, were diagnosed with CIS (other), DCIS, or invasive breast cancer through the NBCCEDP following a mammogram funded through another source.
