Oncologist, Radiation 's  Response
treatment of cervical cancer depends on stage.

You should have mentioned the stage of the disease. operation can be done on both curative and palliative approach. Curative operation generally needs post op radiation most of the cases.

dark spot sounds uncommon. you should have mentioned the biopsy report of that spot.

Consult your radiation oncologist.
