Am I considered a survivor if I had cervical cancer but I had a hysterectomy to remove it 7 months ago?
Yes!: The answer is "yes" assuming a few other details. (1) If your cancer was limited to the cervix and had not spread outside the uterus or to lymph nodes, and (2) the hysterectomy was done right away after diagnosis and was the initial treatment, then your chances of cure are very high and I would call you a SURVIVOR! Good luck! ...Read more

How is cervical cancer treated? What are the common treatments for cervical cancer? Will I have to get a hysterectomy?
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. Very early disease can be treated with several other options. Laser surgery is a surgical procedure that uses the cutting power of a laser beam to make bloodless cuts to remove a tumor. 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.
Hysterectomy is used for the woman who does not want to have children or who has more advanced disease. During this surgery, the uterus and cervix are removed, and sometimes the tubes and ovaries are also removed. Radiation and/or chemotherapy are also used for patients who cannot undergo surgery, or who have advanced disease. Because there can be numerous treatment options depending on the clinical situation, the doctor and patient should make the decision together to come up with the best outcome for that patient. ...Read more
