Various Options On Cervical Cancer Treatment In Kenya?

The cervix is the lower, narrow end of the uterus that leads into the birth canal. Like many other organs of the body, the cervix can develop cancer. Cervical cancer usually develops very slowly over time.

In dysphasia, cervical cells change and abnormal cells appear in the cervical tissue. When this happens, cancer begins to spread around the cervix and beyond. Since the cervix is an important organ in a woman's body, we need to know what treatment options are available for cervical cancer

Cervical cancer is often treated with a hysterectomy, which involves the surgical removal of all of the uterus. If cervical cancer has progressed, lymph nodes may need to be removed.

However, since many patients wish to remain fertile, other gentler cervical cancer treatment methods should be considered. One such gentle treatment is the serial electrosurgery excision procedure or LEEP.

LEEP offers many advantages including low cost, high success rate, ease of use, and often only use of local anesthetics. Another surgical procedure is a cone biopsy.

With a cone biopsy, only a cone-shaped sample is taken from the mucous membrane. Radiation therapy is used as external pelvic radiation therapy and internally as brachytherapy.
