We are in an exciting and interesting time, when oncologists and reproductive endocrinologists across the globe rise to the challenge of providing fertility services for people with a history of cancer. Indeed, developments in oncology have improved long-term survival rates, which can reach 90–95% for testicular cancer, hematologic malignancies, breast cancer and other cancers that strike children and young adults . However, to survive cancer is no longer enough. The emphasis is shifting to enable people to live a life as normal as possible after cancer; this includes giving them the best possible opportunity to have their own biological children.
