Abstract

Cancer of the uterine cervix is the third most common gynecologic cancer diagnosis and cause of death among gynecologic cancers in the United States. Cervical cancer is frequently asymptomatic until it reaches a locally advanced stage. The authors present a case of urinary retention caused by an atypical presentation of invasive cervical cancer mimicking primary urothelial tumor. The patient was evaluated by a multidisciplinary team, with osteopathic structural examination, intraoperative examination, surgical resection, and histopathologic analysis.
