Male cancer survivors less likely to have children

May 25, 2016

Male survivors of childhood cancer diagnosed before age 25 years appeared less likely to have children and more likely to require assisted reproduction than men who did not have cancer, according to results of a national cohort study.

The number of survivors of childhood, adolescent and young adult cancers has increased steadily over time, as has concern about the potential for severe late effects after treatment. Reproductive outcomes among female survivors have been well explored; however, data about male survivors are limited, researchers wrote.
