  • Eight female patients 23-38 years of age are presented who were pregnant and had concomitant thoracic tumors. The tumors were of a variety of cell types, both malignant and benign, causing chest pain, dyspnea, shock, hemoptysis, and mass formation. Surgical intervention, cobalt radiation, and chemotherapy led to survival and cure of both the mothers and the children. An aggressive approach is recommended.
