Many women who have had (or currently have) breast cancer ask if they can breastfeed. The general answer is that breastfeeding is safe unless you are currently being treated with chemotherapy or hormonal therapy. If you have had breast cancer and have not had a double mastectomy, breastfeeding is absolutely possible and very safe.
Breast cancer in younger women tends to be more aggressive, but an early diagnosis can improve your outlook. Your risk of developing breast cancer while lactating is low, but if you’re diagnosed. For example, in certain cases of breast cancer, you may be able to continue nursing from the unaffected breast. Or you may consider “pumping and dumping” – pumping to keep your milk supply going and then throwing away the milk until you can safely breastfeed again. Breastfeeding After Treatment for Early-Stage Breast Cancer Women who become pregnant after completing breast cancer treatment often assume they won’t be able to breastfeed.
Though that’s true for some women, others will be able to breastfeed. Breastfeeding after treatment is safe for you and your baby as long as you are not on. Because cancer is difficult to detect in a lactating breast, it is unusual—though not impossible—for women to be diagnosed during the time they are breastfeeding.

If you are still taking any medicines to treat your breast cancer (such as hormone therapy), it’s very important to talk with your doctor before trying to breastfeed. Some drugs can enter the breast milk and might affect the baby. No.
If you’ve had a double (bilateral) mastectomy, you won’t be able to breastfeed because there’s no breast tissue remaining to produce milk. If you experience what you think is milk production after a nipple-sparing mastectomy, consult with your surgeon and oncologist about the possible presence of residual breast tissue. Yes. New mothers who have had previous breast or nipple surgery can breastfeed their newborns and are strongly encouraged to do so.
All postpartum women can produce at least droplets of colostrum (first milk). Even if mothers get only some milk, they are providing their baby with antibodies at every feeding. After a mastectomy, you’re highly unlikely to be able to breastfeed on the affected side because the remaining tissue won’t produce much (if any) milk, Jennifer Litton, M.D., associate professor in.
