Cervical Cancer Treatments
In most hospitals a team of specialists will work together to decide which treatment is best for you. This multidisciplinary team (MDT) will include:
- a surgeon who specialises in gynaecological cancers (gynaecologist or gynae-oncologist)
- a clinical oncologist (chemotherapy and radiotherapy specialist)
- a pathologist
- a radiologist
and may include a number of other healthcare professionals such as:
- a nurse specialist
- psychologist or counsellor.
Depending on what stage your cancer is and your specific needs, your team will consider the following treatments. In order to fully understand which treatment will be right for you, you will need to discuss this with your consultant at your next appointment.
