Cervical Cancer Treatment Search:

    Before you start to search for the best cervical cancer treatment, find out whether your doctor's treatment plan is the best standard treatment. There are at least two ways to do it: check whether your doctor's plan follows the national comprehensive cancer network's guidelines; or send your cervical cancer treatment plan to elite hospital/ doctors and let them give your second opinion.

    Is Your Cervical Cancer Treatment the Best, Up-to-Date? Guidelines for Diagnosis, Treatments, Supportive Care, by Top Experts, for Doctors, Updated Annually or Whenever Needed. nccn.org

    Unless you are fully cured, cancer may come back or it is too advanced to be treated. Standard cervical cancer treatment is limited in dealing with these situations. Most of cancer patients need to actively search for better treatment to prevent recurrence, or for advanced stage.

    If your cervical cancer is treated appropriately by your doctor, the 5 year survival rate for patients is as following:

Cancer Stage: 5 Year Survival:
    Cancer localized to cervix, uterus     80-85%
    Cancer spread to upper part of vagina     60-80%
    Cancer spread to pelvis     30-50%
    Cancer spread outside pelvis and to other organs     14%

    People may be confused (for a good reason): if my doctor or the whole system can't find a better cure, is there really a better cervical cancer treatment? The answer is positively yes for the following reasons: first, there are new emerging treatments; second, there are better treatments developed in other parts of the world and they are not yet available in US; third there are effective treatments that are not yet subjected to scientific study.
