Good afternoon, thanks for the question
Cervical cancer is a malignancy that comes from cervical tissue. The cervix is the lower third of the uterus, cylindrical in shape, protruding and associated with the vagina.
Choice of therapeutic recommendations for stage IIB cervical cancer conditions are:
3. Neoajuvan chemotherapy, i.e.
chemotherapy (three series) at the beginning followed by radical hysterectomy and pelvic lymphadenectomy (surgical removal of the uterus and lymph nodes around it)
4. Ultraradical hysterectomy
The choice of therapy above must be based on the judgment of the treating doctor with many other considerations, including the patient's response to the previous treatment method. Therefore we strongly recommend to consult further with the treating doctor for further therapeutic options according to the patient's medical condition. Associated with headache complaints can be a side effect of cancer treatment. It is better to inform the doctor who is handling it to consider giving symptomatic medicine.
In cases of prognostic malignancy or the cure rate of patients assessed by the term 5 years survival rates, ie the estimated percentage of the number of patients who can survive the next 5 years after cancer is detected early. Survival rates depend on many factors, one of which is the stage of cervical cancer when it is initially diagnosed. When detected at an early stage, the 5-year survival rate for women with cervical cancer is 92%. If cervical cancer has spread to the surrounding organs or lymph nodes, the 5-year survival rate is 56%. But if it has been detected since the spread to distant organs, the 5 years survival rate is only 17%.
That's all, hope you can help
