Cervical cancer during pregnancy is the actual problem of XXI century in the gynecologic oncology. Statistics data have shown that cervical cancer takes the first place among gynecologic tumors associated with pregnancy. During the past decade a treatment plan for such patients has significantly changed in a favor of pregnancy prolonging and possibility to deliver a healthy child. We have made an informational analysis of PubMed database for 2010-2018 to assess an individual treatment of patient with diagnosed cervical cancer while prenatal screening and revealed progressive and effective therapeutic methods regarding tumor stage and gestational age. Based on learnt scientific articles and literature we have established that now the most appropriate treatment approach is managing platinum-based neoadjuvant chemotherapy to decrease a tumor size and performing opened or laparoscopic uterus-preserving surgeries during pregnancy if needed.
