Cervical cancer is one of the most common types of cancer in women today. In women of childbearing age, cancer ranks 14th in cancer incidence. Until treatment developed in the 1980s, cone biopsy and hysterectomy were the only options for treating cervical cancer.
A cone biopsy is an operation to remove cancerous tissue from the cervix. This can be used for diagnosis or treatment depending on the country of the cancer area. If you are looking for cervical cancer treatment in Kenya then check jacaranda maternity.

The surgery is called a cone biopsy because a piece of cone-shaped tissue is removed and tested to see how large the cancer area is. If a cone biopsy is not effective in removing all the cancer cells, a hysterectomy may be performed.
During a hysterectomy, the uterus or the entire cervix is removed. A hysterectomy, in which only the uterus is removed, is called a partial hysterectomy, whereas the removal of the entire cervix is called a full hysterectomy.
As scientific knowledge about cervical cancer has progressed, the disease has also developed with new techniques. Procedures such as cryosurgery, laser surgery, and LEEP (a cyclic electrosurgical excision procedure used to treat cervical lesions.
