Cancer isn’t just one disease, it’s more than 100 diseases.
Cancer during pregnancy
Cancer during pregnancy is rare. And it’s important to know that you can still give birth to a healthy baby. But you may worry that cancer, its treatment and tests will affect the well-being of your baby. Making decisions that are right for you can be hard. Some cancer treatments are safe during certain times or at all times of the pregnancy. Others are not safe at any time. Most cancers do not spread from a woman to the baby. Recent improvements make it more likely that the baby will have good outcomes.
Your child has cancer
Having a child with cancer is one of the biggest challenges a family can face. There’s no right or wrong way to react to the diagnosis. Many parents feel different emotions at one time or another. But with the help of the healthcare team, loved ones and other parents, you will find ways to help the whole family cope.
