A new study finds that pregnancy does not worsen breast cancer as previously thought.
Researchers at the Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas, tested more than 100 women over more than three decades- all of whom had cancer either during or just after pregnancy.
The results for pregnant patients were found to be the same as among women in the same age group who were not pregnant.
Nearly four percent of pregnancies are complicated by breast cancer and approximately ten percent of breast cancer patients under the age of 40 develop the disease during pregnancy.
The new study contradicts earlier and smaller studies that showed maternity made things worse.
