Primary Treatment for Locally Advanced Cervical Cancer: Concurrent Platinum-Based Chemotherapy and Radiationenglish
Women with cervical cancer for whom primary treatment with radiotherapy is being considered:
- Those with locally advanced cervical cancer
- Those with bulky clinical stage IB (>4 cm) cervical cancer, who are treated with radiotherapy
- Those with high-risk early-stage cervical cancer (node-positive or margin-positive), who will be treated with radiotherapy following hysterectomy
For women with cervical cancer in whom radiotherapy is considered appropriate, does the addition of concurrent platinum-based chemotherapy improve survival and quality of life with acceptable toxicity?
