Uterus Cervix Cancer

Cervical cancer develops slowly (taking 20 to 30 years) and there are different stages between the transformation from a healthy cervix to a cancerous one. These stages are:       healthy cervix inflammatory cervix cervix with epithelial cells anomaly intra-epithelial cancer (cancer limited to the cervix epithelial cells) infiltrating cancer (cancer spread to other close tissues) If the cancer is detected early, it can be easily treated.

The tumor is generally situated in the cervix part near the vagina. It is visible during the examination with the aid of a speculum (an instrument that spreads vagina walls to examine and access the uterus cervix). Sometimes, the tumor is situated inside the cervix and this make the diagnosis difficult.

Treatments of Uterus Cervix Cancer and Procedures
The cervical cancer treatment is different for each stage. Treatment for each stage is as follows:

Intra-Epithelial Cancer: This is an easier stage to treat and the chances of recovery are high. A surgery called conisation is done where only the cancerous part of the uterus cervix is removed. The operation is done under general anesthesia and vaginally. There is no abdominal incision. Spread to Uterus or Vagina: At this stage, the tumor is still local, and high rates of recovery can be obtained with the help of the following methods: o Surgery: A total hysterectomy is done, which means that the entire uterus is removed. This is necessary to ensure that all the cancerous cells have been removed. The pelvis lymph nodes are

also removed and sometimes an ablation of the ovaries is also done, depending on the age of o o o the patients and the characteristics of the tumor. Radiotherapy: A caesium endo-vaginal application (with curietherapy, which is internal radiation exposure) is done and to reinforce its efficiency an external radiation exposure is also done. Both: Surgery and radiotherapy can also be done. Chemotherapy: In some cases, chemotherapy is done along with radiotherapy to reinforce its efficiency. When the cancer has spread to a big part of the uterus or vagina or when the cancer has spread to the close organs, or when there are metastasis. These are the late stages of Uterus Cervix Cancer and for these stages; the treatment consists of radiotherapy, chemotherapy or an association of both.

Technology Used for Cervical Cancer Tratment
Apart from surgery and chemotherapy, the new age technology used to treat cervical cancer include Radiology and Radiation Oncology, which are advanced imaging technology that can be used to detect cancer. Technologies for detection of cancer:      Computerized Tomography (CT) Nuclear Medicine MRI Ultrasound PET Fusion

New cutting-edge equipments include the CyberKnife® robotic radiosurgery, which are at the cutting edge of this technology – both offering pain-free non-invasive treatment with far greater accuracy and speed. Other leading edge treatment technologies available include:    Robotic Surgical System Trilogy Image Guided Radiation Therapy System (IGRT) Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy System (IMRT)
