  • Pelvic exenteration followed by radiation therapy combined with chemotherapy.
  • Chemotherapy as palliative therapy to relieve symptoms caused by the cancer and improve quality of life.
  • Clinical trials of new anticancer drugs or drug combinations.

Check for U.S. clinical trials from NCI's list of cancer clinical trials that are now accepting patients with recurrent cervical cancer.
