    Abstract

    Objective. To review the diagnosis and treatment of women with microinvasive cervical cancer within a geographically defined population.

    Materials and Methods. A retrospective review of cervical cancer in the Grampian region identified 64 women diagnosed with microinvasive cervical cancer since 1991.

    Results. All of the women were referred with an abnormal smear, with invasion suspected on cytology in 12.5% of cases. With the addition of colposcopy, suspicion of invasion was noted in 23.5%. Most women (72%) were managed with conservative excision treatment of the cervix (large loop excision of the transformation zone or cone biopsy).

    Conclusions. Long-term follow-up is vital, because 5 cases of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia and 1 recurrent cancer were detected up to 58 months after diagnosis.
