Maintaining fertility after a cancer diagnosis
If you have a severe illness for which therapies such as chemotherapy, radiation or surgery can be life-saving - but which can significantly disrupt fertility - a decision on which measures to take in order to maintain fertility should be made before beginning treatment.
Not all treatments for cancer lead to reduced fertility. Before beginning treatment, consult our specialized team of physicians regarding the extent to which your cancer treatment may affect fertility and how wanting a child can be taken into consideration in the selection of therapy. Under normal circumstances there is sufficient time before beginning treatment to make arrangements for future family planning.
As an alternative, testicular tissue can also be surgically removed and frozen.
