Cervical Cancer Treatment
Cervical cancer and symptoms can be treated and controlled. The treatment for cervical cancer depends on the stage the cancer is in when it is diagnosed. We use the expertise of our gynecologic oncologists on the medical staff as well as technical information, including CT scans and PET scans, to assist us in the staging of your cancer.
Your treatment plan will be determined by your care team based on age, medical history, type and stage of cervical cancer, and personal preferences. Options may include:
