Breast cancer month: A standard cancer care for pregnant women

[Source: ERC] Cancer in pregnancy is increasingly prevalent (1 to 2 in 2000 pregnancies in Europe), largely because of the recent trend to delay childbearing until a later age. While there is not yet evidence about the potential toxicity of chemotherapy on the foetus, as a precaution, this type of treatment has been largely avoided for pregnant women. Such approach generally led to delay in treatment, termination of pregnancy or premature induction of delivery.
