Breast Cancer during Pregnancy

Pregnancy-associated breast cancer is defined as breast cancer diagnosed during pregnancy or in the first postpartum year.  Breast cancer affects approximately 1 in 3000 pregnant women and is the second most common malignancy affecting pregnancy. The average age of women with Pregnancy-associated breast cancer is 32 to 38 years.  Only 6.5% of all cases of breast cancer affect women age < 40 years.  As more women are delaying childbearing, and as breast cancer rates continue to raise, more diagnoses of Pregnancy-associated breast cancer are anticipated. However, because Pregnancy-associated breast cancer is a relatively rare event surrounded by multiple variables, few studies address the best management and treatment options.
