Pregnant Women-Cancer On The Rise
Posted in the Pregnancy Forum
#1 Oct 23, 2012
The number of pregnant women diagnosed with cancer has increased over the past couple of decades, a new study from Australia suggests.
In 2007, the most recent year studied, researchers found 192 out of every 100,000 pregnant and postpartum women received a cancer diagnosis - up from 112 per 100,000 women in 1994.
Researchers couldn't determine what was behind that increase in risk, but said it could be due in part to the
older average age of expectant moms combined with better cancer detection.

This is really surprising to know that cancer among pregnant women is rising. However it dose seem concerning that it has been increasing for the past years. It may seem like birth control methods among other things may also have a part in the rise of cancer among pregnant women. Though I'm not particulalry sure if the NuvaRing Lawsuit Information Center has all the information on this, I think I have read there that some women who have used vaginal rings have also experienced the same problem.
