BARCELONA, Spain (AP) - There's good news for breast cancer survivors who want to have children.
New research suggests they don't appear to be at any higher risk of dying from cancer.
Doctors, concerned about possible hormonal changes that could spur the disease's return, have long counseled many patients against getting pregnant after they recover. Now, experts say pregnancy is safe and does not seem to be linked with the disease's recurrence.
The new study was presented at a European breast cancer conference in Barcelona.
A cancer expert at Breast Cancer Care in Britain says advice for patients might vary depending on the type of breast cancer they've had and how they responded to treatment.
