Prognostic significance of cervical lesion size and pelvic node metastases in cervical carcinoma.


There were 289 radical hysterectomies performed at Roswell Park Memorial Institute for Stage IB, IIA, and recurrent cervical cancer from 1957 to 1967. The prognostic significance of cervical lesion size, pelvic node metastases, and type of radical hysterectomy have been evaluated. Excellent 5-year survival rates for women with Stage IB cervical carcinoma were associated with cervical lesions measuring less than 3 cm and resected pelvic lymph nodes which did not contain metastatic cancer. In addition, 31% of women with recurrent cervical cancer treated by radical hysterectomy survived 5 years without recurrence.
