Cancer during pregancy is an exceptionnal event, about 0.05 to 0.1% of pregnancies. Physician's first reaction can be to protect his patient from pregnancy only to treat the cancer. But now most of treatments in that case are standardized similary to the management offered without pregnancy. Nevertheless, some situations are incompatible with the continuation of the pregnancy; we should not disregard them at the time of fertility preservation.
