Pregnancy after breast cancer is not necessarily linked to recurrence of the breast cancer.  This was discussed at the 2017 annual meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology.  In a paper presented by Dr. Lambertini, women younger than 50 years of age with breast cancer who had not spread were followed.  Of 1207 patient’s, 333 became pregnant.  The time from diagnosis to conception was 2.4 years.  The follow-up was 10 years.  There was no difference in survival.  Of this group 40% had “poor prognostic factors.”
