Description of intervention(s) / exposure
Newly diagnosed cervical cancer patients will have key prognostic variables (FIGO stage, tumour diameter, corpus invasion etc) collected at baseline. The treatment received will be documented at the end of treatment and patients will then be followed for first relapse and survival. The duration will be 5 years.

Outcomes
Primary outcome [1] 2436 0

Timepoint [3] 2438 0
Patients will be followed up at yearly intervals until death.
Secondary outcome [1] 4205 0
Assess the degree of correlation between maximum clinical diameter of the tumour and primary tumour volume, determined after baseline assessment (time of registration)
Timepoint [1] 4205 0

Secondary outcome [2] 4206 0
Assess what relationships exist between FIGO stage, tumour volume and corpus invasion, determined after baseline assessment (time of registration)
Timepoint [2] 4206 0
The tumour is only measured at this time point. After treatment, only the site and date of first relapse is followed up.

Summary
Brief summary
The researchers propose that it may be corpus invasion, rather than tumour volume per se, which is one of the important determinants of ultimate outcome in cervix cancer. The aim of the proposed prospective, multicentre study, is to confirm the results of our retrospective studies, specifically that corpus invasion or tumour volume or both contribute important prognostic information over and above that provided by the currently used International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO) staging system. A successful outcome would have important implications for the staging, and management as well as the biologic understanding of the behaviour of cervical cancer.
