Individualization of Treatment for Cancer of the Cervix
If one is to take the position that we should individualize treatment for cancer of the cervix as we do for other diseases according to the patient’s age, general health and outlook one must choose between the two excellent modalities of treatment available to us: radical surgery and radiotherapy, or elect combinations thereof. In order to make this choice dependent upon patient factors rather than therapist factors, by which I mean the training, temperament, departmental policy or other variables related to the physician in charge, we must utilize the biological parameters clinically available for this decision.
