Treatments for cervical cancer
If you have cervical cancer, your healthcare team will create a treatment plan just for you. It will be based on your health and specific information about the cancer. When deciding which treatments to offer for cervical cancer, your healthcare team will consider:
- the stage of the cancer
- your age
- your general health
- whether or not you want to become pregnant in the future
- what you prefer or want
