Future fertility in survivors of childhood cancer—examining the impact of cancer treatment on uterus function
The worldwide population of survivors of childhood cancer is increasing. In Europe, current estimates are that there are nearly 500,000 childhood cancer survivors with a median age range between 25 and 29 years. Approximately 10,000 new survivors are added to these numbers on a yearly basis (1). The U.S. cancer statistics report of incidence, mortality, and survival from the American Cancer Society has also confirmed a sustained increase in the 5-year relative survival rate of children and adolescents treated for all cancer diseases combined.
