Cervical Cancer

According to the American Cancer Society, approximately 13,800 new cases of cervical cancer will be diagnosed this year in the United States. Far more prevalent throughout much of the rest of the world, the occurrence rate in the United States is significantly lower due to standards in routine screening and prevention.

Customized Treatment: Surgery, Chemo, Radiation Therapy and More

At Westchester Medical Center, women receive custom-tailored treatment plans for every stage of cervical cancer. Most often diagnosed in women over 40, early stage cervical cancer is typically treated with excisional procedures of the cervix or laparoscopic and robotic surgeries. Extensive discussion of surgical options can help patients and physicians determine if minimally invasive surgery is appropriate or if more radical open surgery is required.

Cases of cervical cancer that cannot be treated surgically may receive both chemotherapy and radiation therapy; these approaches are commonly used in locally advanced cases, as well. We partner with radiation oncology specialists to provide appropriate care based on each individual patient’s needs. Additionally, gynecologic oncologists at WMCHealth offer tumor testing to determine if a patient could be a candidate for immunotherapy, an alternate treatment option for advanced or recurrent cervical cancer.
