Objective: to study the frequency and timing of recurrence in patients with cervical cancer, depending on the age, stage of the disease, morphological structure and form of growth of the primary tumor. Material and methods: The clinical data of 1999 patients with stage I-IV cervical cancer treated in the department of gynecology, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and urology of the RSNPMTSO in 2014-2017 retrospectively analyzed. The clinical diagnosis confirmed by morphological examination of cervical biopsy specimens. Results: the occurrence of tumor recurrence is directly dependent on the prevalence of the malignant process at the time of initial treatment, as well as the stage of the initial process and the morphological structure and form of the initial tumor growth. Conclusions: the relationship of these factors with the timing and frequency of recurrence of cervical cancer can determine the nature of the clinical course of the disease and the choice of the optimal treatment for primary tumors of the cervix, which is extremely important to predict the risk of recurrence of the disease and its earlier detection followed by immediate treatment.
