How does treatment affect fertility for men?
Some cancer treatments can reduce your fertility. This can make it difficult or impossible to father a child.
Before starting radiation therapy treatment, talk to your doctor, nurse or radiation therapist about:
- How your treatment may affect your fertility.
- Whether you want to have children in the future.
- Fertility sparing options that may be available to you and/or your partner.
Your doctor may refer you to a fertility specialist.
