There are two procedures to give radiotherapy i.e. internal and external radiotherapy. In external, a linear accelerator machine focuses high-energy radiation beams on the area and destroys cancer cells. However in internal radiotherapy, a small radioactive material is inserted in the body near the cancer cells. Both are painless procedures. The systemic radiotherapy involves swallowing a radioactive substance that travels through blood and destroys the cancer cells. The side effects may vary but there is temporary damage to healthy cells.
Surgery is a hope or can say it helps in increasing life expectancy. The early ovarian cancer surgery may preserve the ability to have children. Cone biopsy or LEEP is done to remove a wedge of cervical tissue that contains the cancerous cells. Radical trachelectomy is done to remove cervix, pelvic lymph nodes and a part of vagina without removing uterus.

Radical Hysterectomy involves removing uterus, cervix, ovaries, fallopian tubes, nearby lymph nodes, part of the vagina and some tissue surrounding these organs. Modified radical hysterectomy involves removing fewer organs i.e. uterus, cervix, upper part of the vagina and less tissues surrounding these organs.
Bilateral salpingo oophorectomy involves removing both the ovaries and complete fallopian tubes. Pelvic exenteration is the most serious pelvic surgery which is performed to remove uterus, cervix, vagina, ovaries, lower colon, rectum and bladder.
