Abstract

Carcinoma of the uterine cervix is one of the most common malignant neoplasms among women and remains the leading female malignancy in Thai women. Cervical cancer diagnosed during pregnancy remains a therapeutic challenge for physicians. Pregnant women should have cervical cytology screening at their first prenatal visit. In cases of cytological abnormality, colposcopy is indicated. Cervical conization is used for the diagnostic role only. The management of invasive cancer depends on the gestational age at diagnosis, stage of disease, patient’s desire of pregnancy, ethics and religious beliefs including family and decision making by multidisciplinary teams.
