Reproductive and sexual concerns of young women treated for lymphoma, leukemia and breast cancer
Dr. Goldfarb’s team will document the impact of cancer treatment on reproductive and sexual health in young women treated for lymphoma, leukemia and breast cancer. Premature ovarian failure and sexual dysfunction are serious problems that reduce their quality of life. They will obtain information from patients shortly after diagnosis and through treatment into survivorship. They will assess the problems experienced and the use and effectiveness of assistance, to which we will refer study patients. Dr. Goldfarb will characterize and compare sexual dysfunction by diagnosis and treatment type, and document factors that influence decisions regarding fertility preservation.
