Discovery Boosts Boys' Prospects for Post-Cancer Fertility
Date:11/20/2009

van Pelt said.

Still, van Pelt said, "this is a big step forward."

But would parents and boys undergoing chemotherapy even be thinking a decade or more ahead, especially while dealing with the strain of cancer itself?

"Yes, since the parents of these boys are very much concerned about the future fertility of their son," van Pelt said. "We have investigated this already, and found that over 60 percent of parents would want to store testicular tissue of their son."

Dr. Jill P. Ginsberg, director of the Cancer Survivorship Program at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, said that parents of these children do indeed look forward. "Fertility is an important part of any survivor's quality of life, and families are able to understand this even at the time of diagnosis, which is incredibly stressful," she said.
