Breast Cancer during Pregnancy

         Despite the responsiveness of breast tissue to hormone stimulation in the pregnant and lactating states (where patient age and disease stage are controlled for), the prognosis does not appear to differ from that of non-pregnant patients of the same age and disease stage [46]. Doctors believe that terminating a pregnancy can help reduce the progression of advanced breast cancer; nevertheless, doing research in this field is difficult, and just a few high-quality trials have been conducted. There has been no evidence that terminating a pregnancy improves a woman's prognosis in trials undertaken to date. Furthermore, studies have not shown that the types of treatment delays that are sometimes required during pregnancy   have an impact on the outcome of breast cancer; nonetheless, this is a controversial topic
