Pregnancy has no effect of skin cancer growth

A report in the Journal of Clinical Oncology by European researchers has found that pregnancy does not affect the survival rate of women with malignant melanoma of the skin. Thus the hormonal and other body changes that women undergo during pregnancy does not affect the rate of growth of skin cancers. Thus, there is no justification to terminating a pregnancy in order to improve skin cancer prognosis.
