Pregnancy associated breast cancer.
The breast journal
Pregnancy associated breast cancer (PABC) defined as breast cancer occurring during pregnancy or within the first 1-2 years postpartum. Delay in diagnosis is common. Treatment is timed around gestational age. Surgery and chemotherapy are considered safe after the first trimester. Radiation, anti-her-2, and endocrine therapy are delayed until after delivery due to adverse fetal effects. Iatrogenic prematurity likely causes most long-term fetal sequelae. Multi-disciplinary care and social support are critical for patients and families with PABC.
