Cervical cancer: clinical review


Content developed by MIMS Learning http://www.mimslearning.co.uk/

INTRODUCTION

While the majority of cervical screening tests will not detect any abnormalities, from time to time, pre-cancerous cells will be detected, and it is important that general practice nurses understand enough about the diagnosis and management of cervical cancer to be able to answer patients’ questions.

This resource reviews diagnosis and management of cervical cancer, and offers an overview on common surgical management techniques and factors affecting prognosis. Key learning points for GPNs include risk factors, common symptoms, and suitable investigations.
