Advanced or metastatic cervical cancer is cancer that has spread
from the cervix to deeper tissues in the pelvic area or to other organs of the
body. Advanced cervical cancer is rare in women who have regular screening
tests such as the Pap test.
Advanced cervical cancer is usually treated with radiation,
chemotherapy, or a combination of both. Sometimes surgery is done if the cancer
is all contained in the pelvis.
