Abstract

The progress that we have achieved in the last decade both in early pregnancy investigation and in understanding of cancer has led to this text. There is an obvious need to deal with the dark side of cancer and pregnancy — patients who face the serious threat of having cancer during pregnancy. However, the discussion would clearly be incomplete if we did not also look at the brighter side of the equation: that patients can and will benefit from our understanding of the similarities and differences between the unique biological phenomena of pregnancy and cancer. This understanding could become very useful in both diagnosing and treating cancer in pregnant and non-pregnant patients.
