  Breast cancer remains the most common malignancy in women worldwide, and the most diagnosed cancer in patients of reproduc- tive age. In the era of major advances in the molecular classification and the treatment of early breast cancer, patients have an improved survival irrespective of their ages. Thus, women are prone to regain a normal regular lifestyle including the procreation. Nevertheless, prior pregnancies and breastfeeding are among the risk factors of developing a breast malignancy. Breast cancer diagnosed during pregnancy continues to be a challenge of treating and saving the mother without affecting the fetus and the delivery. Nowadays, there have been more publications discussing this topic, but all the recommendations are still of limited evidence.
