An analysis of the causes for iatrogenic diffusion of gynecological malignant tumors during their diagnosis and treatment, through clinical experience and a comprehensive review of both Chinese and international literatures was carried out. When a curettage, hysteroscopy or laparoscopy is performed, an iatrogenic diffusion of malignant tumors can be caused. Therefore this phenomenon needs to be prevented and reduced during the diagnosis and treatment of gynecological malignant tumors, and to improve the curative effect and survival times of tumor patients.
