The Cancer in Pregnancy ForumArchived Questions and Answers
This Forum has been the centre of an exceptional exchange of knowledge diagnosis, treatment, symptoms and other effects of cancer during pregnancy and lactation. All are welcome to review the Questions and Answers posted here, provided that they acknowledge and accept the important proviso and disclaimer below.
There is almost no research on the psychosocial impact of pregnancy during cancer. I wrote a review of this area last year for Seminars in Oncology, and when I moved to MD Anderson in August, I asked our informatics department to pull up how many women in our institution are pregnant at diagnosis. It is only about 15 a year, at least as far as our recording goes. This is not enough to do a research project, but I remain very interested in this area. Has your consortium considered such a study, or would anyone be interested in collaborating on a grant proposal?
