For some women with a very early cancer of the cervix, it may be possible to have a trachelectomy. In this type of surgery the cervix and the upper part of the vagina are removed, but the rest of the womb is left in place. The lymph glands in the pelvis are also removed, usually through a tiny cut in the abdominal skin (called keyhole surgery).

The goal of surgery is to remove as much cancer as possible. If the tumor is small and only in the cervix, surgery often cures the cancer. Tumors that are small and that have not spread are called early-stage cancers. Surgery is most often used for early-stage cancers.
Making the Decision to Have Surgery for Cervical Cancer
