Affect of cancer on fertility
Cancer affects the fertility of an individual in two ways. It can cause some problems even during the fertility treatment or there may be some fertility problems encountered as side effects of treatment undergone for cancer.
The therapy obtained for cancer includes chemotherapy and radiation therapy and as these includes the usage of ultra violet radiation; these may cause some side effects. These therapies even sometimes cause the menopause among females to come up early leading to the problems in fertility for cancer patients.
