I am looking for any information about prenatal diagnostics or a special treatment of patients who are after the treatment for oncological diseases - especially hematological malignancies, breast cancer or colorectal cancer (and seem to be in remission). Are there any report of pregnant patients who have been treated for leukemia as children?
There have been many reports of pregnancy outcome of women treated for childhood cancer. Overall, the results appear reassuring with no increased risk for malformations reported. Some researchers described an increased risk for prematurity and perinatal complications, so it is prudent that her pregnancy be followed by a high risk team.
