Abstract

Microinvasive cervix cancer (Stage Ia) is the earliest stage of squamous carcinoma, and has a 98% 5-year survival. This article reviews risk factors, etiology, and diagnosis of this disease. The important prognostic factors for treatment planning are depth of invasion, lateral extent of invasive tumor, and lymphvascular space invasion. Conservative management is appropriate in selected cases with the goal of preserving fertility.
