Is it true that once affected by cervical cancer due to HPV, the solution is to remove the uterus? Does removing it eliminates the disease too?? Help

In brief: Not Necessarily

With regular PAP smear we are able to diagnose Cervical CA at a very early stage.
So Local excision , LEEP procedure, Colposcopy are several other options . It depended on how deep is extension of the cancer. Yes, if Hysteractomy is required it eliminates the disease. Uerine and Cervical cancer are very localized cancer, Slow to spread ouside the body of Uterus and surgically treated
