Abstract

Cancer and Pregnancy is a challenging conflict of interests between the mother’s disease and the wellbeing of the fetus. Cancer in pregnancy is not any longer a rarity, because that disease already occur at younger age. On the other hand pregnancies are shifted into higher age groups. The incidence of cancer during pregnancy has a frequency between 0.1 % and 0.02 %. It affects reproductive behaviour too. It is not only a medical problem, it is a psychological and social problem too - to wait hopefully to a child, cancer is a dramatic threat of live for mothers and the fetus.
