Cancer of the cervix can be controlled or even cured completely if diagnosed early and treated appropriately. When poorly treated or detected at an advanced stage, cervical cancer can spread beyond its original site to invade the lymph nodes and giving rise to metastases in other organs distant from the pelvis. The metastases may be present in the abdomen, lungs or other organs. In this case, survival chance decreases considerably.
Complications of the Treatment
Treatments for invasive cervical cancer often lead to infertility. Therefore, if you have cervical cancer and are planning to have children in the future, talk to your doctor before starting the treatment.
