Motherhood after breast cancer doesn’t lower survival chances
Giving birth to a child after having breast cancer has no detrimental effect on the woman’s prospects of surviving the illness, according to a new study led by Professor Richard Anderson at MRC Centre for Reproductive Health.
Professor Anderson said: ‘This analysis shows that having a baby after breast cancer doesn’t have a negative impact on survival. It provides reassurance for the growing number of women who want to start or complete their families after breast cancer treatment.’
He presented these findings at the 38th annual meeting of ESHRE. Read the full press release.
