Cancer is a serious global health issue. Cancer of the cervix is one of the leading gynecological malignancies worldwide; though it is more prevalent in the developing countries. Fruitful approaches are needed to control cervical cancer. Awareness through proper education, screening and early detection may pave a way to combat the disease process in the first place. Surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy are some of the common modes of treatment for cervical cancer. Conventional medical treatments often are not able to eliminate the offending growth fully and are not free from complications. Side effects very often are disastrous. Therefore, it is high time to focus our attention to bring about a novel way to tackle the problem. Advocating holistic approach using plant derived phytochemicals may address this health problem. These molecules show potent anticancer potential and are free from toxicity. Adjunctive therapies using phytochemicals may prove to be of tremendous importance. Plants are a prime source of effective drugs for the treatment of various forms of cancer. Many of these compounds are well characterized and have led the researchers to develop potential chemotherapeutic agents. Neutraceuticals may not replace the conventional treatment regimen, but they may enhance the efficacy of chemotherapy and radiotherapy.
