- Early stage treatment: Surgery is recommended for treating the cancer confined to the cervix. Radiotherapy may be implemented after surgery when the cancer specialist finds sufficient reasons to believe about the existence of cancer cells. Radiotherapy is also used to reduce the risk of repetition.
- Late stage treatment: Advanced or invasive cancer affects various other parts of the body and thus requires extensive treatment options. Such treatment will comprise radiotherapy or a combination of radiotherapy and chemotherapy. Also the administration of palliative therapy is administered to relieve symptoms and improve quality of life.
