Fathering children and cancer treatment

Some cancer treatments can cause men to become unable to father a child (infertile). If you think you might want to have a child some day, talk to your doctor before starting treatment. One option may be to bank (save and preserve) your sperm. (See our document, Fertility and Men With Cancer for more details.) Check out a sperm bank about the costs and how it’s done.
