NCCN Publishes Guidelines for Rare Cancers Associated with Pregnancy

On August 9, the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) announced the publication of a new set of guidelines for gestational trophoblastic neoplasia (GTN), also known as gestational trophoblastic disease (GTD), a group of rare cancers that can affect women during pregnancy. GTN can occur when tumors develop in the cells that would normally form the placenta during pregnancy. It affects approximately 1 out of every 1,000 pregnancies in the United States and is more common in many Asian and African countries. The NCCN Guidelines for GTN detail treatments for several variations of the disease.
