Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The most common malignancy concurrent with pregnancy is breast cancer. Since an increasing number of women are electing to postpone pregnancy to their late thirties and forties, the incidence of breast cancer concurrent with pregnancy is increasing. This article critically reviews the incidence, unique diagnostic and therapeutic considerations, the natural history and ultimate prognosis of breast carcinoma associated with pregnancy and lactation.
