Men with cancer rendered infertile by surgery, chemotherapy, radiation and hormone therapy that are needed to control or cure their disease are increasingly being offered the chance to preserve their reproductive potential through artificial reproductive technologies. Cryopreservation of sperm and testicular tissue have increasingly helped boys and men preserve their fertility. There is a growing subspecialty within reproductive medicine aimed at fertility preservation in this population. Furthermore, strategies are being developed that may in the future revolutionize the approach to such patients. Written by international authorities in the field of fertility preservation, this comprehensive book is aimed at clinicians dealing with male cancer patients, in particular, urologists, andrologists, oncologists, pediatricians, nursing staff as well as clinicians in reproductive endocrinology. The text reviews the impact of cancers and their treatment on male fertility, the available fertility preservation strategies and post-treatment management.

i cant believe that this is real until i tested him, i want to use this medium to warn everyone that criticize this great healer indianmeications@gmail.com for what they have not test and confirm, i have tested this man and confirm him he is real and genuine and he was the one that cured my cancer with his herbal medicine after i went through hell taking English treatment but i guess that was a wasting of time, i never thought this great healer Dr Shapson could cure my cancer at first when i contacted him cause he did not demand much from me, so i said let me give him a trial cause there is no harm in trying. this man ask told what i will do and i kindly do it and he ask me to go for check up after 3weeks of taking his treatment to confirm if i was still having the sickness, i kindly went for check up after taking taking his herbal medicine for three weeks, to my greatest surprise i am free cured, i am very happy this moment and i will keep sharing this testimony till God call me to rest. please if you are out there sicking from CANCER or any disease kindly contact this man on his email address: indianmeications@gmail.com
