Simple Versus Radical Hysterectomy for Stage I Cervical Cancer: Preferences of Women at High-Risk for Developing Cervix Cancer vs. Women Diagnosed With Cervix Cancer
You will be asked to undergo a face to face interview. During the interview, you will be
asked questions about your values and feelings about your health status. You will be shown
a "feeling thermometer" and asked to rate how your health condition makes you feel. You
will also be asked to rate how some of the risks of treatment of cervix cancer make you
feel. You will be shown a "chance board" and asked to consider some of the possible
outcomes of the disease and possible risks associated with the treatment of cervix cancer.
You will be asked to consider the likelihood of achieving certain outcomes and of developing
certain side effects due to the disease and/or treatment. The interview will take place in
a private room in the clinic and should take around 20 minutes to complete.
This is an investigational study. As many as 96 women will participate in this study. Up
to 48 women who are at high risk of developing cervix cancer and up to 48 women who have
been diagnosed with cervix cancer will participate. All will be enrolled at M. D. Anderson.
