Pregnancy-associated breast cancer and increased risk of pregnancy-associated recurrence: a case report Full Text
Journal of Medical Case Reports, 06/08/2012
Schnabel F et al. – The case described here is the first report of a second occurrence of pregnancy–associated breast cancer. This case raises the possibility that pregnancy may represent a unique trigger for breast malignancy in a specific cohort of women. Although there is data showing no increase in the risk of recurrence for women who become pregnant after breast cancer treatment, pregnancy–associated breast cancer may be a distinct clinical category where subsequent pregnancies after treatment may confer an increased risk of recurrent disease.
