Fertility Concerns of Cancer Patients Survey


While many cancers are now curable, chemotherapy and radiation may result in high rates of sterilization for some types of cancer.  In some cases, there might be alternative treatments that are less likely to result in cure but which may have lower rates of sterilization.  Unfortunately, we know very little about patients' preferences.  We need your help to better counsel people facing these choices .

We encourage patients with cancer and healthy volunteers to participate.  This study evaluates what value people place on fertility and its potential loss in the setting of cancer treatment.  

The study is anonymous, completed entirely on the web, and takes only 10 minutes to complete.  

This research project has been approved by the Yale University School of Medicine Human Investigation Committee.  

The entire survey from start should take less than 10 minutes to complete.
