Chemotherapy for cervical cancer

Chemotherapy uses drugs to damage or destroy cancer cells. Our cervical cancer team includes medical oncologists, physicians who specialize in the administration of chemotherapy, immunotherapy, and other medications. 

Types of chemotherapy for cervical cancer

Our medical oncologists will work closely with you to customize the most appropriate chemotherapy treatment, which may include:

  • Adjuvant chemotherapy is often given after surgery. This chemotherapy is used to kill any remaining cancer cells that may have spread or were not seen during surgery. In many cases, it can reduce the risk of new cancerous tumors.
  • Neoadjuvant chemotherapy, although rarely used in cervical cancers, may be given in certain cases. This type of chemotherapy may decrease the risk of the cancer returning. It can kill cancer cells that are unseen because they have moved away from the original tumor site.

Your medical oncologist will outline your chemotherapy treatment options and what to expect during your chemotherapy treatment.
