Introduction: Advances in cancer detection and treatment have resulted in increased prevalence of female cancer survivors at child-bearing age-group. However, data regarding pregnancy outcome of cancer survivors are scarce. Aims and objectives: This article aims to determine whether cancer survivors have increased risk of obstetric complications. Results: We identified eight patients who have been treated for various types of malignancy and their maternal and fetal outcome during pregnancy. We identified the outcomes and possibilities of various diseases like choriocarcinoma, gestational trophoblastic neoplasia, synovial cell carcinoma, bronchogenic carcinoma, acoustic schwannoma, papillary carcinoma thyroid, chronic myeloid leukemia (CML), and cystadenocarcinoma of ovary. Conclusion: As developments in oncology continue, it is likely that we will see an increasing number of women with a history of cancer within obstetric services.
