  • My aunt had breast cancer when she was pregnant. They found out about halfway through the pregnancy. My cousin was born about a month and a half early because they couldn't wait any longer to do surgery and start treatment on my aunt. Both are fine today.
    I think that it depends on how far into the pregnancy you are if they find out you have cancer. It might come down to the life of the baby or your life, or it might be a situation like my aunts.

  • Well I dont think they could do anything till you have the baby. Probaly give you extra viatimns and what they can do without hurts the baby, then when the baby is born they would probaly do the chemo or removal depending on what kind you had.

  • it depends on what kind of cancer it is, and how far you are in the pregnancy. they can and have done chemo on pregnant women.
