Rise in Pregnancy-Associated Cancers Not Fully Explained by Older Age
Date:9/7/2012

FRIDAY, Sept. 7 (HealthDay News) -- A rise in the rate of pregnancy-associated cancers is only partially explained by the increasing number of older mothers, a new study contends.

A pregnancy-associated cancer is one in which an initial diagnosis of cancer is made during pregnancy or within a year of giving birth.

Other factors that may contribute to increasing rates of pregnancy-associated cancers included improved diagnostic techniques and detection, and increased use of health services during pregnancy.

The researchers also noted that the hormones and growth factors necessary for fetal growth may accelerate tumor growth.

Cancer during pregnancy was associated with a significantly increased instance of Cesarean section, planned preterm birth and infants who were large for their gestational age.

The study was published Sept. 5 in BJOG: An International Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology.

"The trend for women to postpone childbearing has raised concerns about the incidence of cancer in pregnancy increasing," study co-author Christine Roberts, a perinatal health researcher at the University of Sydney, said in a journal news release.

"Although maternal age was a strong risk factor for
