SABCS 2020: Pregnancy After a Breast Cancer Diagnosis
Fertility after breast cancer treatment is an important issue for many, many younger women diagnosed with breast cancer. At the 2020 San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium, research was presented showing that while breast cancer survivors of child-bearing age are less likely to get pregnant than the average woman, most have healthy babies and pregnancy has no effect on their long-term survival. Dr. Matteo Lambertini is corresponding author of the study.
Listen to the episode to hear Dr. Lambertini explain:
why the researchers did the study
a summary of the study and the results
why it is important for women and doctors to know that pregnancy after breast cancer treatment is safe for both a woman and her baby
his advice to young women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer and want to have a child after treatment
Dr. Matteo Lambertini is adjunct professor of medical oncology at the University of Genova - IRCCS Policlinico San Martino Hospital.
