In a demonstration that newer isn’t always better, two studies published in the New England Journal of Medicine show that minimally invasive surgery techniques, including robotic surgery, lead to higher death rates from any cause than traditional, open surgery done through an incision in the abdomen. Minimally invasive surgery — or keyhole surgery, in which doctors perform operations through small incisions rather than by opening up patients and exposing them to complications — and robotic surgery have shortened recovery times and cut back on infections and bleeding. So in many cases, surgeons prefer usin...

Primary malignant melanoma of the cervix (PMMC) is a rare and aggressive tumor. Studies on clinicopathological findings, treatment outcomes, and prognostic factors of this disease are lacking. We reviewed 14 cases of PMMC recorded from January 1972 to February 2017 at the Tianjin Medical University Cancer Institute and Hospital. Twelve (85.7%) of the 14 patients presented a history of vaginal bleeding and 11 (78.6%) underwent surgery. The overall survival was 3–70 months, with a median time of 13.7 months. Patients who underwent surgery (P=0.035) had high survival rates, whereas those with lymph node metastasis and l...

Over the last forty years, Pap smear screening has enabled early detection and removal of precancerous and cancerous cervical lesions, resulting in a substantial decline in cervical cancer incidence and mortality in the United States (US) [1,2]. US cervical cancer screening guidelines have evolved since 2002 due to growing concerns about the harms of overtreatment of precancerous lesions, including: patient discomfort, anxiety, bleeding, inconvenience, increased health care costs, cervical insufficiency leading to preterm deliveries and perinatal mortalities [3].
