Uterine cervical tumor metastases and their treatment
Uterine cervical carcinoma is a locoregional disease. However, particularly advanced stages, in the presence of N+ and pelvic relapse, it may produce secondary lesions located far from it. In our case series, consisting of 473 portio carcinomas treated at the Institute of Radiology of the U.C.S.C., we found distant metastases in 6.76% of the cases. This study examines the cases of metastasis in relation to stage, histology, risk-factors treatment of the primary tumour and survival after the treatment of the secondary lesions.
