Help Is Out There: Hearing the word cancer can be devastating; please realize that our cure rates with breast cancer are high. The combination of your age and pregnancy make your case "complicated". You and your family should seek out care at a comprehensive cancer center, ideally at an academic teaching hospital. You will need advice from cancer doctors, an ob, a genetic counselor & perhaps others.

Very rare: This is a very rare situation for a young pregnant person to have biopsy documented breast cancer. You would need to discuss your situation, alternatives, and your personal preferences with a medical oncology specialist immediately.Personal and ethical issues need to be addressed. This is not an issue that can be discussed in such a short forum as this.
