The Japan Society of Gynecologic Oncology (JSGO) Guidelines 2017 for the Treatment of Uterine Cervical Cancer are for the purpose of providing standard treatment strategies for cervical cancer, indicating treatment methods currently considered appropriate for cervical cancer, minimizing variances in treatment methods among institutions, improving the safety of treatment and prognosis of diseases, reducing the economic and psychosomatic burden of patients by promoting performance of appropriate treatment, and enhancing mutual understanding between patients and healthcare professionals. The guidelines were prepared through consensus of the JSGO Guideline Committee, based on careful review of evidence gathered through the literature searches and in view of the medical health insurance system and actual clinical practice situations in Japan. The guidelines comprise eight chapters and five algorithms. The main features of the 2017 revision are as follows: (1) evidence was collected using a search formula and with cooperation of the Japan Library Association. The bibliographical search formula was placed at the end of the book; (2) regarding clinical questions (CQs) where evidence or clinical inspection in Japan was lacking, opinions of the Guidelines Committee were described as "proposals for future directions"; (3) cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) 3 and adenocarcinoma in situ (AIS) were treated as a cervical precancerous lesion; (4) the CQs of endoscopic surgery, radical trachelectomy, and sentinel node biopsy were newly added in Chapter 3, "primary treatment for stage IB-II cervical cancer"; and (5) the CQ about hormone replacement therapy after cancer treatment was newly established. Each recommendation is accompanied by a classification of recommendation categories based on the consensus reached by the Guideline Committee members. Here, we present the English version of the JSGO Guidelines 2017 for the Treatment of Uterine Cervical Cancer.
