Unfortunately, I am not familiar with the stage of your cervical cancer. Cervical cancer can be treated very successfully with surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy. If the cancer is situated in the cervix and has not spread, the doctors should be able to resect the cancer and remove the cancerous growth completely.
