Specializes in Radiation Oncology

Not much has changed in terms of principles of treatment: a) early stage - surgery b) later stage - radiation + chemo or chemo diagnosis - pap smear. More efforts in educating women to get pap smears are in place now compared to the 90s as well as educating the role of hpv with cervical cancer now. This is a good review on cervical cancer http://www.Cancer.Net/cancer-types/cervical-cancer.
