Cancer in pregnancy
Cancer in pregnancy occurs in about one in 1,000 pregnancies. Recent reports have shown that most treatment regimes in second and third trimester are safe for the mother and the child. This has led to a paradigm shift in treating pregnant women with cancer. The management of the pregnant woman should be in a multidisciplinary setting, and delivery should be postponed to avoid very preterm delivery and planned 2-3 weeks after the last chemotherapeutic treatment allowing both maternal and foetal bone marrow to recover.
