Whilst considered to be rare, lung cancer can be diagnosed during pregnancy. Findings in ‘The Journal of Advanced Research’ (2016) suggest diagnoses of non-small cell lung cancer were usually made around the third trimester, with up to 97% at Stage 3 and stage 4. 82% of the women gave birth to healthy new-borns.
Statistically, lung cancer statistically is found in people at a more advanced age and consequently lung CNS have little experience in supporting patients with lung cancer who are pregnant. There is a variety of support available locally.
