Your Fertility

Chemotherapy/Radiotherapy

When a cancer diagnosis is made, the potential effect on fertility depends on the type of treatment recommended. There are treatments which will have no effect on fertility while others can affect the sperm production in the testes and ejaculation. It's reassuring to remember, that most of these effects are dose and frequency dependent, and in many cases the the effects are temporary.

Men in their reproductive years should discuss fertility with their oncologist and consider sperm banking at HARI with the National Oncology Cryopreservation Program (This is to be a link)
