One in five young BRCA pathogenic variant carriers conceive within 10 years of breast cancer diagnosis, according to study in the Journal of the American Medical Association.

The findings, published to coincide with the annual San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium in the US, suggest that pregnancy following BRCA1– or BRCA2-associated breast cancer is not associated with adverse maternal prognosis or fetal outcomes.
