Abstract

ObjectiveTo provide a review in the available literature about the safe fertility-preserving management in gynecological malignancies, focusing on the selection criteria of the patients, treatment options and follow-up.DesignLiterature survey.ResultsThe incidence of cancer in women who still want to get pregnant is increasing significantly. An early detection in gynecological malignancies allows less aggressive approaches to cure such disorders. A more conservative management, which preserves fertility, is considered safe and an option for those who have not completed their child-bearing.ConclusionsSelected patients with cervical, endometrial and ovarian cancer may be candidates to a safe fertility-preserving management. A careful stage and follow-up of the patients is essential to achieve success with this practice.
