odds are if they did chemo and raditation that should have taken care of the cancer as thats what most doctors use here in the US.

Hi Khalfann,
Thank you for your question and for advocating for your sister's health. We are also glad you joined EmpowHER. I have asked for expert help to give you advice on what else you and your sister can do in regard to her treatment and improving her chances for beating her cancer.
In the meantime, the following may help give some insight: Cervical Cancer Advocacy Sheet: Diagnosis and Treatment, etc., and National Cancer Institute: Cervical Cancer Information
Good luck, and when I receive more information, I will reply again.
