Cervical cancer is a type of cancer that usually occurs between the ages of 30-50 and catches women in the prime of their lives. Although it is seen at a young age, it is seen in 15-20% of women over the age of 60. Service cancer is on the list of preventable and completely eradicable cancers by the World Health Organization.

Cervical cancer is one of the leading cancers whose cause is known today. HPV virus is the most important cause of cervical cancer. It can be detected at an early stage, especially with screening tests such as the examination of the cervix and the smear and HPV test. In addition, precancerous lesions such as CIN1, CIN2 and CIN3 in biopsies taken from the cervix can be prevented from progressing to cancer by treatment methods such as LEEP/conization.

When we look at the structure of the uterus (uterus), muscle tissue (myometrium), the inner wall of the uterus (endometrium) and the cervix (cervix) consists of parts. Different cancers develop from the anatomical structures we have mentioned. For example, cervical cancer that develops from the cervix, sarcoma that develops from the muscle tissue of the uterus, and endometrial cancer that develops from the inner wall of the uterus are different cancers. Their biological behavior, relapse rates and treatments also differ. With this aspect, it should not be forgotten that although cervical cancer is in the preventable cancer group, it is a lethal cancer.

How to diagnose

Cervical cancer is diagnosed by examination and biopsy from the lesion in the cervix. If necessary, this biopsy is performed under colposcopy (with a special microscope with a light on the cervix).

Treatment of Cervical Cancer- İstanbul

Treatment of cervical cancer should be done by gynecological cancer surgeons trained in this field. Treatment of cervical cancer varies according to the stage of the disease.

Surgery and radiation therapy (radiotherapy) are the basic treatment methods. In particular, the pre-examination of the patient is extremely important in making this decision. If necessary, examination should be performed under anesthesia. Our main goal is to treat with surgery, especially in the early stages.

So that some side effects of radiation therapy are prevented. But especially in stage 2B and later, treatments including radiation and chemotherapy come to the fore. Surgery for cervical cancer is not a simple cervix removal surgery. What we call a radical hysterectomy (removal of the uterus).

Our patients are fertile with the surgical techniques we call conization or trachelectomy (wide removal of the cervix) in the very early stages for couples who want to have children.
