Cervical cancer is the fourth most common malignancy in female worldwide; the present method for diagnosis is the biopsy, Pap smear, colposcopy etc. To overcome the drawbacks of diagnosis an alternative technique is required, optical spectroscopy is a new technique where the discrimination of normal and cancer subjects provides valuable potential information in the diagnostic oncology at an early stage. Raman peaks in the spectra suggest interesting differences in various bio molecules. In this regard, non invasive optical detection of cervical cancer using urine samples by Raman Spectroscopy combined with LDA diagnostic algorithm yields an accuracy of 100% for original and cross validated group respectively. As the results were appreciable it is necessary to carry out the analysis for more number of samples to explore the facts hidden at different stages during the development of cervical cancer.
