    There are a number of staged approaches to treatment. The first one, of course, is if the cancer is in situ, that is localised to the surface cells of the cervix, it can be cut out with a very minimal procedure. Beyond that, hysterectomy is one treatment. If a cervical cancer has spread beyond that, then radiation can be used. But, again, the whole purpose is to prevent cervical cancer early, when a less aggressive treatment will be successful.
