As more children are diagnosed with cancer and achieving higher survival rates, a growing need exists for more information about reproductive health in that segment of the survivor population. Reproductive Health and Cancer in Adolescents and Young Adults fills that need. The quality-of-life issue is laid out in an easy-to-follow-and-read format with provider recommendations at the end of each chapter. The 16 chapters in this text discuss topics such as the principles of cancer treatments and their impact on reproduction, fertility preservation in men and women, the impact of cancer on family planning and parenting, ethical and legal concerns surrounding fertility preservation, and reproductive technologies.
