ALVAREZ, Claudia et al. Classification and staging of cervical cancer: an update. Rev. argent. radiol. [online]. 2012, vol.76, n.2, pp. 169-171. ISSN 1852-9992.
Despite advances in screening and prevention, cervical cancer remains a major threat to women's health worldwide. A correct evaluation of prognostic factors is crucial for choosing and planning the most appropriate treatment. Cervical cancer staging has undergone modifications in the 7th edition of TNM, reflecting the new classification adopted by the International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO). In this paper we present the updated and consolidated system of cervical cancer staging.
