Consider fertility options before treatment if possible. A sarcoma diagnosis often requires immediate action, and treatments can affect the patient’s fertility. If fertility is an important to you, bring it up with your doctor.
Men’s options include sperm banking. Proactive patients usually have time to arrange for this procedure before treatment begins.
Women’s options are more complex, but can still be discussed and considered. Some men and women regain fertility after treatment and go on to have healthy children.
