New study results show that simple hysterectomy is a safe option for women with early-stage, low-risk cervical cancer


A simple hysterectomy with pelvic node dissection is a safe treatment option for women with low-risk early-stage cervical cancer and may help improve quality of life, according to results from the CX5/SHAPE study, an international phase III clinical trial in which the Netherlands Cancer Institute (NKI) also participated. The research findings were presented at the 2023 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting.

The research concludes that treatment for early-stage, low-risk cervical cancers may be de-escalated with a simple hysterectomy compared to the standard radical hysterectomy.
