Abstract

Accurate assessment of lymph node metastasis in cervical cancer is imperative to treatment plan. A histologic sampling method is suggested in which surgically excised lymph nodes are dissected at multiple levels before paraffin embedding. This approach proves to be a more sensitive procedure than the current bisection method in detecting metastasis.
