The management of cervical cancer in pregnancy is a major challenge due to the rarity of the condition limiting available evidence to guide recommendations. This case series aims to contribute to literature by documenting three cases of cervical cancer in pregnancy with delayed definitive treatment including a case of International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO) stage 1B2 endocervical adenocarcinoma diagnosed at 18 weeks’ gestation, a case of FIGO stage 1A1 squamous cell carcinoma of the cervix with lymphovascular invasion diagnosed at 20 weeks’ gestation and a rare case of FIGO stage 1B2 villoglandular adenocarcinoma of the cervix diagnosed at 28 weeks’ gestation. The short- to medium-term follow-up of these patients are promising.
