Reproduction and Cancer - RHHG5021

Year - 2020

This unit examines three areas of interest linking cancer, reproductive endocrinology and infertility. The first concerns the application of 'reproductive insurance' using cryopreservation of ovarian cortical biopsy specimens, mature oocytes, sperm and embryos in patients with cancer. The second area explores the evidence between infertility and its management, childlessness and common gynaecological cancers and the alleged increased incidence of testicular cancer. The third examines the alleged links between breast cancer and hormone replacement therapy in the menopause.
