Learn About Factors That Can Affect Cervical Cancer Prognosis

Once someone has been diagnosed with cervical cancer, they often wonder (along with treatment options, recovery time, and lifestyle changes) what their prognosis or their chance of recovery is and how long they will live.

This is a fair question and cervical cancer prognosis depends on a number of different things such as:

– The stage of the cancer (whether it affects part of the cervix, involves the whole cervix, or has spread to the lymph nodes or other places in the body).
– The type of cervical cancer.
– The size of the tumor.

Treatment options depend on the following:

– The stage of the cancer.
– The size of the tumor.
– The patient’s desire to have children.
– The patient’s age.
