The incidence of pregnancy-associated cancer is on the rise. A 36-year-old lady married for three years underwent IVF for mild male factor infertility following the failure of conception with six cycles of ovulation induction and three cycles of IUI. She conceived spontaneously two months after the frozen embryo transfer cycle. She was diagnosed to have breast cancer at 32 weeks of pregnancy. Her records did not show findings of breast examination during the antenatal visits. She was advised to take chemotherapy, but she refused because of the fear of effects on the fetus and underwent LSCS at 35 weeks. An alive female baby with a weight of 2.5 kg was born. Postoperatively, she was managed with neoadjuvant chemotherapy and was referred for mastectomy. Counseling for chemotherapy should involve treating obstetrician in addition to the oncologists.
