Breast cancer & pregnant

Last reply: 18 August 2022 04:35

Hey, I am 23 weeks pregnant and got the news at 19 weeks that I have breast cancer.
I’m post op….lumpectomy and lymph node removal and got the good news today that nodes and margins are clear.
I am now facing the journey down the chemotherapy road and just wanted to see if there are any women on here who are pregnant or who had been pregnant while going through chemo? X

Hi, Congrats on your pregnancy and sorry to hear you’ve found a lump but you’re deffo doing the right thing getting it checked.
Like you I found a lump and went to my gp who referred me to breast clinic . It did take a few weeks and apps to get scan and biopsy and the results, so if you’re doc could request to get all those done at your first app you’re better off as the waiting and the not knowing was just awful!
