The invasive cervical cancer associated with pregnancy is rare case, but the most common cancer among the malignancy associated with pregnancy. The diagnosis and the symptoms are not different from the non-pregnancy case, but vaginal bleeding which is the main symptom of cervical cancer is often misconceived for usual complication of pregnancy, and could delay the diagnosis. Pregnancy provides ideal times for cervical cancer screening, since pelvic examination could be easily performed. So all pregnant patients should have a cytology at the initial antenatal visit. The treatment is not significantly different from the non-pregnancy, but when we determine the treatment plan, the start time of treatment is most important point and it was affected by the gestational age at diagnosis and strong desire of the patients. We report 3 cases of invasive cervical cancer associated with pregnancy since 1998, and we delayed the treatment until postpartum in 2 cases.
