Can I get breast cancer during pregnancy?

Breast cancer is the most common cancer in pregnant and postpartum women. It occurs in about 1 in 3,000 pregnant and lactating women. The detection of a lump may be hindered by the natural tenderness and engorgement of the breasts of pregnant and lactating women. It is important to know what is normal for your breasts and to be aware of any changes in their look or feel and to have a clinical breast exam as part of routine doctor's visits if you are pregnant or lactating.
