UNC Lineberger-led research found a low rate of fertility counseling and referral for sperm banking in young men with cancer receiving chemotherapy. The study was led by Natalie Grover, MD, of the UNC School of Medicine Division of Hematology and Oncology.

In a review of cases between 2013 to 2015, researchers found that less than one-third of reproductive-age men with cancer received counseling about the potential impact of treatment on their fertility. In addition, they found that approximately one in 10 men pursued sperm banking, suggesting that there may be a financial barrier to the practice.
