Survival in cervical cancer
European Journal of Gynaecological Oncology
PURPOSE OF INVESTIGATION: To analyze survival rates for cervical cancer cases seen in our institution. METHODS: All cervical cancer cases seen between 1982 and 1996 were included. Survival analysis was performed using the Kaplan-Meier estimator. RESULTS: One hundred forty nine cases were analyzed, with a mean age of 50 years. Overall, 5-year survival was 73%. Disease-free survival ranged from 68% at 12 months to 6% at 5 years. For women under 40 years of age, 5-year survival was 74%, while for those older than 40 years it was 69%. CONCLUSION: The results seen in our Department are similar to those found in other developed countries.
