Cancer & Pregnancy
Updated: Jan 29, 2020
Cancer and Pregnancy is possible; people don’t know that cancer in pregnancy is possible (hard to mentally combine something wonderful with something deconstructive).
Cancer in pregnancy is possible and treatble. Being pregnant is not an obstacle to treatment.
A pregnant woman should be treated as close as possible to the standard
therapy to ensure an optimal maternal outcome.

No difference in prognosis compared to non-pregnant patients when matched for:
•Tumor (sub) type •Stage •Prognostic markers •Treatment •Age
TOP does not improve maternal prognosis!
