Objective: The primary objective of this guideline is to provide Canadian physicians up-to-date, accurate information and recommendations regarding: i impact of pregnancy and lactation on risk of breast cancer; ii prognosis of breast cancer diagnosed during pregnancy and lactation; iii risk of recurrence of breast cancer with the occurrence of subsequent pregnancies; iv feasibility of breastfeeding and its impact on the prognosis of women with breast cancer. Options: This guideline reviews evidence on whether pregnancy and breastfeeding change the lifetime risk for breast cancer in women, and whether breast cancer diagnosed during pregnancy or during lactation has a different prognosis. It also offers recommendations to clinicians in counselling their patients regarding future pregnancy and future breastfeeding for women who have been treated for breast cancer. Outcomes: These guidelines should help physicians counsel patients using evidence-based recommendations. These recommendations may also improve the prognosis of patients diagnosed with breast cancer during pregnancy and lactation, or of those patients who had breast cancer and are contemplating future pregnancies. Evidence: A Medline search was carried out for all publications from through , in the English language, related to breast cancer and pregnancy in terms of diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment, as well as for breast cancer and breastfeeding, with particular focus on impact of treatment of breast cancer on lactation and prognosis of breast cancer after lactation.
