Sentinel lymph node in early cervical cancer – pros and cons aspects
Cervical cancer remains an important health problem worldwide responsible for a high number of deaths especially in cases diagnosed in advanced stages. When it comes to patients diagnosed in early stages, they have an improved prognosis with high rates of 5 year overall survival. Due to the fact that one of the most important routes of dissemination remains the lymphatic pattern, studies were focused on determining which cases are more suitable for lymph node dissection even if an early stage of the disease is expected. This is a literature review regarding pros and cons aspects of the utility of sentinel lymph node in early stage cervical cancer.
