Diagnosis and Treatment of Pregnancy-Related Cancers in Women: Pregnancy, Fertility and Beyond Conference
on Friday, June 08, 2012 at the
New Haven Lawn Club in New Haven, CT.
This live activity is designated for a maximum of 4 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits(TM).
It is estimated that cancer will be diagnosed in 1 in 1,000 pregnant women. As more women delay childbearing, this number will increase. Still, there remains significant controversy regarding diagnosis, staging, management and fertility preservation in these patients. The leading cancers associated with pregnancy are cervical, breast, melanoma and lymphomas. The purpose of this conference is to educate health care providers on the current state of the art with regards to diagnosis and management of these key malignancies in pregnancy.
