Dr Matteo Lambertini - Institut Jules Bordet, Brussels, Belgium

Dr Lambertini presents results from a multinational study at ASCO 2017 assessing the risk of breast cancer recurrence for pregnant women.

He describes how patients with a history of ER cancer, the most common type of breast cancer, had slightly delayed conception rates compared to ER- tumours, but that at 10 years there was no difference in disease recurrence regardless of pregnancy.

Dr Lambertini notes that these results, describing pregnancy as 'safe' for breast cancer survivors, refers only to breast cancer recurrence, with pregnancy complications to be considered separately.
