Cervical Cancer Treatment (PDQ®): Treatment - Patient Information [NCI] - Treatment Options for Recurrent Cervical Cancer

Treatment of recurrent cervical cancer may include the following:

  • Pelvic exenteration followed by radiation therapy combined with chemotherapy.
  • Chemotherapy as palliative therapy to relieve symptoms caused by the cancer and improve quality of life.
  • Clinical trials of new anticancer drugs or drug combinations.

Check for U.S. clinical trials from NCI's list of cancer clinical trials that are now accepting patients with recurrent cervical cancer. For more specific results, refine the search by using other search features, such as the location of the trial, the type of treatment, or the name of the drug. General information about clinical trials is available from the NCI Web site.

Primary sarcomas of the cervix have been described occasionally, and malignant lymphomas of the cervix, primary and secondary, have also been reported.
