Childbirth Safe After Breast Cancer

Bradley Mattes   |   April 13, 2012

New research out of the European Breast Cancer Conference shows having a baby after breast cancer can help women survive longer. In the past, many doctors have advised women to abort if they became pregnant after having breast cancer. The old school of thought was it could increase the risk of the cancer returning. But the opposite is true. A study followed women for five years, and not only was a pregnancy safe within two years, it provided a better disease-free survival compared to those who didn’t become pregnant. Dr. Hatem Azim, an oncologist in Brussels, said the research is very important because it shows pregnancy after breast cancer is safe any time. He said, “”Abortion should not be promoted for therapeutic reasons in these patients.”” This is good news.
