In brief: Low. The rates are.

11,000 new cases of cervical cancer (NCI estimate) occurred in the US in 2008.
It is crucial to recognize that the majority of these cases could have been prevented with regular Pap screening. In the future, vaccination will likely reduce this rate significantly. In 2010 about 22,000 new cases of ovarian cancer were diagnosed. Oca is more age-associated than Cca.

Only approximately 1 in 65 women will get ovarian cancer in their lifetime.
Cervical cancer is only about one half as common as ovarian cancer in the us.
