    Early cervical cancer is usually treated with surgery, and that can be a fairly simple surgery such as a cone biopsy; or a radical trachelectomy. Both of those are simple operations are fertility sparing surgeries. Or, indeed, women can undergo definitive treatment, that is a part of a hysterectomy known as a radical hysterectomy. A radical hysterectomy is a little bit more complicated than a normal hysterectomy. Usually, in a definitive surgery or radical hysterectomy, the ovaries are retained , but obviously the uterus is removed so that has fertility implications. For advanced disease, the treatment is usually chemotherapy with or without radiation therapy.
