Over the past two decades, major advances in diagnostic modalities and treatment have markedly improved rates of cure for adult cancers. As a consequence, the number of long-term survivors is increasing, and fertility preservation has become a major issue for young patient about to start treatment for cancer. Whether fertility preservation is a promising option, most of the technologies currently used are far from being well established or are even still experimental. Patients should be aware that no method guarantees success. Psychological and ethical impacts of fertility preservation are major concerns and should be included in the multidisciplinary approach of the patients.
