This position paper delineates the structure of some experi- ments to detect early symptoms of cervical cancer. We are using a large corpora of electronic patient records texts in Swedish from Karolinska University Hospital from the years 2009-2010, where we extracted in total 1,660 patient records with the ICD-10 diagnosis code C53 for cer- vical cancer. We used a Named Entity Recogniser called Clinical Entity Finder to detect the diagnosis and symptoms expressed in these clinical texts containing in total 2,988,118 words. We found 28,218 symptoms and diagnoses on these 1,660 patients. We present some initial findings, and discuss them and propose a set of experiments to find possible early symptoms and/or a spectrum of early symptoms of cervical cancer.
