Uterine cervix: I'm assuming you mean cancer of the uterine cervix. Premalignant and early lesions may be cured by simple excision, it is often possible to preserve the uterus. More advanced lesions need more aggressive treatments, and even incurable cancer may respond to radiation or chemotherapy or a palliative procedure to keep the kidneys working.
