Title: Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma survivors' fertility and sexual function-related information needs.

Journal: Fertil Steril 90(4):1256-8

Date: 2008 Oct

Abstract: This population-based study assessed information needs related to fertility and sexual function in 250 non-Hodgkin's lymphoma survivors from a Los Angeles Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results cancer registry 2-5 years after diagnosis. Results suggest that many survivors have persistent fertility and sexual concerns 2-5 years after diagnosis, highlighting the importance of oncologists working collaboratively with reproductive endocrinologists to uniformly inform patients about these issues during routine follow-up cancer care visits.
