The chapter on infertility associated with cancer treatment examines key ethical issues in delivery of cancer care. Early signs and symptoms of a developing brain tumor are not always disturbing enough to alarm the patient to seek medical attention. Cause for delay in time-to-diagnosis is usually multifactorial, and unfortunately, risks worsening of the tumor condition. Initiation of treatment, however, must always be deferred until the patient has been informed of the risks and benefits of available therapies. This is especially true when the therapy could limit the patient’s fertility. Physicians must be diligent in their understanding and communication of the medical, social, and ethical aspects of treating cancer, as treatment might impact the patient’s overall survivorship and quality of life.
