Cervical cancer begins as abnormal cells growing in the lining of the cervix. Though slow-growing, it should be treated before it can affect fertility and spread to other tissues and organs, most often the lungs, liver, bladder, vagina and rectum,

Overview

Our gynecologic oncology team will diagnose and determine the extent of your cancer with a Pap test and colposcopy, a procedure to examine your cervix. We may recommend an ultrasound, X-rays, MRI, cone biopsy, HPV DNA test, and PET or CT scans. Our surgeons may perform video-assisted laparoscopic or robotic surgery using the da Vinci Surgical System, and follow-up chemotherapy or radiation may be required.
