Comprehensive care for cervical cancer
Cervical cancer occurs when cells in the cervix start to grow abnormally. There are several types of cervical cancer, but the most common forms are squamous cell carcinoma and adenocarcinoma.
Many of our Baylor Scott & White Health locations across Texas offer dedicated navigators to help guide you through your treatment plan, collaborate with your physician and make appointments as necessary.
Our navigators can also offer referrals to other sources of support and aid with emotional needs.
Cervical cancer treatment
Cervical cancer and symptoms can be treated and controlled. The treatment for cervical cancer depends on the stage the cancer is in when it is diagnosed. We use the expertise of our gynecologic oncologists on the medical staff as well as technical information, including CT scans and PET scans, to assist us in the staging of your cancer.
Your treatment plan will be determined by your care team based on age, medical history, type and stage of cervical cancer, and personal preferences. Cervical cancer treatment options may include:
- Laser therapy
- Loop electrosurgical excision procedure (LEEP)
- Radical trachelectomy
- Radical abdominal hysterectomy
- Radiation therapy
- Hormone therapy
- Immunotherapy/biological therapy
- Pain management
- Clinical trials (when appropriate)
