Pregnancy and colorectal cancer

 "" PHOTO
"" ""

UC Davis researchers have determined that women diagnosed with colorectal cancer during or shortly after their pregnancies have survival rates similar to those of nonpregnant women who have the disease. The investigation, led by gynecologic oncologist Lloyd Smith, is among the first studies of the maternal and newborn health risks in women diagnosed with the disease. The study was published in the Journal of Maternal-Fetal Health and Neonatal Medicine. Smith and his colleagues also found that the outcomes for the babies are the same for women with and without the disease. The study is one in a series aimed at learning more about cancers and pregnancy, with the goal of giving reliable information to ob/gyns who manage patients with cancer.
