About this trial

The purpose of this trial is to see if a simple hysterectomy is as good as a radical hysterectomy in preventing cancer of the cervix from returning, and whether, because less tissue surrounding the uterus is removed during surgery, there are fewer side-effects after the surgery and in the long-term.

Patient Profile

Patients with previously untreated, histologically confirmed, low-risk early stage invasive cervical cancer.

Where’s this trial being run?
