A retrospective study using data from the Yorkshire Cancer Registry was undertaken to investigate the incidence, characteristics and prognosis of cases of cervical adenocarcinoma in the Yorkshire Region. Three hundred and twenty-six women resident in the Yorkshire Region formed the basis of the study. The overall five year survival for adenocarcinoma of the cervix is 53%. This was influenced by stage, lymph node involvement and differentiation. 37 out of 122 surgically treated patients received inappropriate treatment. There is a need for improved data collection in the treatment of these patients. This lends weight to the argument that cancer of the cervix should be managed in cancer units.
