Cancer of the uterine cervix is most common in countries that do not have access to cervical cancer screening and prevention programs. Treatment of cervical cancer varies significantly between countries (adjusted to stage) and is dependent on medical resources. Radiotherapy for the treatment of gynecological malignancy has been used with different techniques for treating the local tumor and regional lymph nodes. This review discusses recommendations of radiotherapy for cervical cancer according to stage.
