What Sets Us Apart

Cervical cancer begins in the cervix, which is the lower part of the uterus, or womb. The cervical canal connects the uterus to the vagina, allowing passage of blood during a menstrual period or delivery of a baby during childbirth.

Cervical cancer is one of the most preventable and treatable cancers. Doctors at NYU Langone’s Laura and Isaac Perlmutter Cancer Center encourage women to take preventive measures, including vaccination and regular screening. Changes to the cells of the cervix often can be caught using screening tests and managed before they become cancerous.


At NYU Langone’s Perlmutter Cancer Center, a National Cancer Institute-designated cancer center, we personalize the care of every patient.More About Perlmutter Cancer Center

CLINICAL TRIALS and Research Studies

Our teams of physicians and scientists work together across multiple disciplines to bring our patients the most innovative clinical trials.Find a Clinical Trial

Our gynecologic oncologists coordinate your treatment plan, offering the newest minimally invasive procedures and surgeries, while collaborating with NYU Langone’s radiation oncologists and a multidisciplinary team. Our specialists offer a wide range of therapies and work closely with doctors at our Fertility Center to explore all available fertility-sparing treatments—options that allow you to have a baby after treatment for cancerous or precancerous conditions of the cervix.

Treatment at NYU Langone

Treatment for precancerous cervical growths may include outpatient procedures to remove abnormal tissue. For women with cervical cancer, our doctors may recommend surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, or a combination of these treatments. Supportive therapies are available during and after treatment to enhance healing.
