  • Abstract The cervical cancer occurs frequently for women. It is also the number one malignancy for women in Taiwan. In general, both doctors and cancer patients need to pay attention to the risk of recurrence or death after the surgery or adjuvant therapy. Therefore, the risk assessment of prognosis is very important for the cancer patients.
    In this study, we discuss the problems from three aspects. Firstly, we use the two sample test to examine the differences on patients with squamous cell carcinoma or adenocarcinoma under different risk factors. In order to compare the risk of recurrence or death for the patients with squamous cell carcinoma or adenocarcinoma, we compute the relative risk and odds ratio of recurrence or death between them. Secondly, we employ a nested logistic regression model to explain the relationship of depth of cervical invasion as well as lymphovascular space invasion with respect to tumor size. Moreover, we use the logistic regression model to estimate the probabilities of lymph nodal metastasis with respect to tumor size, depth of cervical invasion and lymphovascular space invasion. In the end, we analyze to the risk assessment of prognosis for those patients with depth of cervical invasion.
