Does cervical cancer surgery affect tubal ligations?

In brief: No

Pre-cancer of the cervix, also called dysplasia, is often treated with leep surgery which would not affect a tubal ligation.
More serious invasive cancers of the surgery generally require a hysterectomy, in which case a tubal ligation would no longer be necessary, but the hysterectomy would not change the tubes or adversely affect them.

In brief: Cancer or Dysplasia?

Either way, cervical cancer can be treated with a radical hysterectomy (if less than stage ib) which makes a tl a mute point.
Radiation therapy or chemo won't affect your tl either. If you have dysplasia, leep or cold cone biopsy won't affect your tl either. It's actually a benefit knowing your tubes are blocked with some of the above treatments.

In brief: No

Depending on the type and severity of the cancer, surgery may be local or a hysterectomy (removal of the uterus) local surgeries do not affect your tubal ligation.
