The treatment for most stages of cervical cancer includes (one or a combination of):
- surgery, such as a hysterectomy and removal of pelvic lymph nodes with or without removal of both ovaries and fallopian tubes
- radiation therapy
Depending on how much the cancer has grown, you may have one or more treatments. And you may have a combination of treatments. You won't be able to have children if you have a hysterectomy, but this isn't always needed, especially when cancer is detected very early.
