Breast cancer during pregnancy. Conceptual image of a pregnant woman holding her breast, representing cancer of the breast during pregnancy. Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women. Survival of pregnant women with breast cancer may be worse than non-pregnant women with breast cancer, due to delayed diagnosis. Treatment is with a combination of surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy, though the latter two may harm the unborn baby.
