In cases of gynaecological cancer, the use of endoscopic techniques, in spite of becoming more frequent, is very controversial. Mainly, the potential risk of dissemination, which worsens the patient prognosis and leads to consequent adjuvant therapy is of concern. Based on data from the literature the authors present the advantages and disadvantages of using hysteroscopy in patients suffering from endometrial malignancy. According to the references and personal experience, the diagnostic and therapeutic value of laparoscopy in cases of cervical, endometrial and ovarian cancer are discussed.
