Breast cancer survivors can successfully have children, new study shows.

Researchers from the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute have found that most young women who have been treated for breast cancer can still conceive and give birth. The study followed nearly 200 young women over a median of 11 years after treatment. Results showed that 73% of those who attempted to conceive succeeded, and 65% had a live birth. The study, presented at the 2024 Annual Meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO), highlighted that fertility preservation methods like egg or embryo freezing increased live birth rates. This research provides valuable insights for counseling breast cancer survivors on fertility issues.
