Book cover image
Cancer in pregnancy presents physicians with a serious and ethical challenge, yet the sources of concise data and guidance for the management of this disease are scarce. The Motherisk program, based at The Hospital for Sick Children, Toronto, is dedicated to addressing this problem.

Cancer in Pregnancy and Lactation: The Motherisk Guide tackles this subject by providing evidence-based information needed to address the complex issues of maternal diagnosis, management, treatment, prognosis and long-term impact on the unborn child.

Based on the research by members of the international Consortium of Cancer in Pregnancy Evidence (CCoPE) this book provides physicians with the core knowledge required to make sound clinical decisions in the face of sometimes conflicting interests.

Co-edited by recognized experts in the field with over 25 years' experience, this comprehensive volume is essential reading for all maternal-fetal medicine physicians, obstetricians, neonatologists, oncologists, and pharmacologists.
