"The concomitance of cancer and pregnancy is a biological paradox and a great challenge to patients and their partners and families. It is also a challenge to oncologists, because management of the pregnant cancer patient involves both mother and fetus. Ideally, oncologists work with a multidisciplinary team to deliver optimal cancer therapy to the mother, while assuring fetal well-being. This book, written by experts with knowledge and clinical expertise on diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up of women with cancer during pregnancy, provides a comprehensive review of data and an overview of psychological, ethical, and social aspects.
