Treatment : Treatment options depend on the stage of the cancer, the size of the tumor, the patient's desire to have children and her age. Not every patient is treated with a hysterectomy.

Conization is surgery done to remove a cone-shaped piece of tissue from the cervix and cervical canal. Cryosurgery is a procedure in which tissue is frozen by liquid nitrogen or liquid carbon dioxide to destroy abnormal cells.
