Treatment

Cervical cancer may be treated with surgery, radiation therapy and/or chemotherapy. Depending on your situation, your treatment team mayrecommend using a combination of treatments to treat your cancer.

Your specific treatment plan will depend on several factors, including:

  • The stage of your cancer
  • The size and location of your cancer
  • Your age and general health

All treatments for cervical cancer have side effects. Most side effects can be managed or minimized. Some treatments may affect your sexual function or your ability to have children.

Before beginning treatment, it is important to learn about the possible side effects and talk with your treatment team members about your feelings or concerns. They can prepare you for what to expect and tell you which side effects should be reported to them immediately. They can also help you find ways to manage the side effects that you experience.
