In brief: Depends on treatment

It depends on what treatment is chosen by you and your gyn oncologist.
Really there are only two options-- surgery or radiation which often is accompanied with chemotherapy to make the radiation work better. The choice between surgery or radiation depends on your clinical stage of cancer (all cancers are by convention categorized into stages 1 through 4) and your wishes.

In brief: Depends on stage

Early cervical cancer can be cured by local excision or removal of uterus.
If it spreads beyond the cervix, survival rates decrease and treatment with surgery, radiation and drugs may be needed.
