Abstract

The incidence in women less than 35 years of age is increasing despite an overall decrease in newly diagnosed invasive cervieal cancer among all age groups. However the influence of young age on prognosis remains controversial. So 163 patients of invasive cervical cancer in women aged 35 or less treated from Jan. 1, 1984 to Dec. 31. 1993 at the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Kosin Medical College, Pusan, Korea, were studied retrospectively. We obtained the following results; The 5-year survival rates by clinical stage were 88.7Y% in stage I b, 71.5% in stage IIa, 31.2% in stage IIb and O% in stage III or above. The lymph node metastasis rates by stage in RAH group, were 21.3% in stage I b and 31.8% in stage IIa. The lymph nodc metastasis rates by lesion size in RAH group, were 19.2% in 2cm below, 20.7% in 2-4cm and 40.0% in 4cm above. The 5-year survival rates in RAH group were 74,9% in lymph node positive group and 89.0% in lymph node negative group. The recurrenee rates by clinieal stage were 0% in stage Ia, 20.6% in stage I b, 22.2% in stage IIa, 50.0% in stage Ilb and 90.9% in stage III or above.
