Cervical cancer and lasting symptoms on survivors

A new study conducted at the Medical University in Vienna indicates that many survivors of cervical cancer continue to experience "mild to moderate fatigue, insomnia, and hot flashes" several years after their cancer diagnosis.  According to study author Stephanie Smet, a radiation oncology resident, the 1200 women who took part in the study were all survivors of locally advanced cervical cancer, and ranged in age from 22 - 91; 64% of these women experienced fatigue, and 43% reported insomnia.
