In order to minimize this jeopardy, it is possible to introduce medical treatment by immunotherapy in such cases. Cryosurgery, CO-laser therapy, and radical electrocautery are all effective in eradicating CIN, but not the cancerogenic. This local ablative therapy must be followed by medical restoration of the body's defense mechanism to prevent the recurrence of the disease. Only immunotherapy as a means of treating the whole body can alone prevent and cure the dissipathogenic states, as a final cause of cancerogenesis of any part of the body, not only the uterine cervix.

The results of treatment of cervical carcinoma from 1950 to 1986, obtained from all over the world, show no practical improvement in the 5-year survival rate for stages I (75%-79%), II (53%-58%), and III (28%-33%). Still, the survival rates depend on the stage of cancer at the Environmental Risk Factors on Cancer and Their Primary Prevention 33 moment of its detection, not on the method of treatment.
