Dear OncoLink "Ask The Experts,"
Kevin Fox, MD Assistant Director, Clinical Affairs and Associate Professor of Hematology/Oncology at the Abramson Cancer Center of the University of Pennsylvania responds:
It is presumed that estrogen-sensitive breast cancers will be sensitive to all forms of estrogen with few exceptions. No form of estrogen is safer than another. There can be large increases in estrogen secretion with pregnancy. I personally think it is pretty risky.
May 4, 2015 - Although pregnancy may conceal breast cancer in younger women and lead to a delay in diagnosis, evaluation and treatment, pregnancy-associated breast cancers are not associated with a worse outcome compared to non-pregnancy-associated breast cancers, according to research published online Feb. 9 in Cancer.
