Prognosis For Cervical Cancer:
The table below summarizes various prognostic factors that are known to be associated with survival in patients with Cervical Cancer.
Prognostic Factor Median Overall Survival (95% Confidence Interval) Age (years) 30 (26 – 35) 0.9 (.8 – 1.4) Stage* I 46 II 35 IIIB 21 IVA 7 IVB 5 Recurrence 23 0.9 (.7 – 1.2) Histology Grade I 51 Grade II 35 Grade III 23 pN0 26 0.8 (.5 – 1.1) pNX 41 0.7 (.5 – 1.0)
Treatment For Cervical Carcinoma In Situ:
The following treatment options are used for patients with cervical cancer in situ.
Surgery is the treatment of choice for patients with early stage of cervical cancer. The most common surgical procedure for this condition is the surgery, which provides the best chance for cure.
The following therapies can be used as adjuvant therapy for patients with cervical cancer in situ who have undergone surgery.
Chemotherapy is the treatment of choice for patients with extensive stage of the cancer, or if the disease has spread to other parts of the body. The most common types of chemotherapy used for this condition include Cisplatin and Cyclophosphamide.
Hormonal therapy can be used to treat patients with advanced or recurrent disease.
Targeted therapy is used in patients who are found to have specific alterations.
Re-irradiation is used to treat patients with persistent or recurrent disease.
Immunotherapy is used to treat patients who have not responded to other types of treatment.
The prognosis of this condition depends on the stage and type of cancer, the overall health of the patient, and the treatment that is used.
General information about Cervical Carcinoma In Situ:
Cervical cancer (also called uterine cancer) starts in the lining of the womb (uterus). It is more common in women over the age of 30 and less common in women under the age of 20. The cancer begins when cells in the lining begin to multiply more quickly than normal and form a mass. This mass is called a tumor.
Over time, the tumor can grow and invade nearby organs. If it invades nearby blood vessels, then it can spread to other parts of the body. This is called metastasis.
The most common symptom is abnormal bleeding from the womb, such as after menopause. These symptoms are not specific to cervical cancer and can also be caused by uterine fibroids, endometriosis or an STD. These need to be ruled out before a diagnosis of cancer is considered.
If cervical cancer is diagnosed, early stages can be cured by surgery. Later stages are treated with a combination of surgery, chemotherapy and radiation.
