That Cancer Conversation in a white speech bubble with a dark blue background
This entry is part 1 of 21 in the series That Cancer Conversation


For the first episode of That Cancer Conversation, we explore infertility and cancer.

From teenage body worries to an intercontinental surrogacy story, we chat to Max, Kreena and Eleanor – 3 people whose cancer journeys affected their fertility in some way.

Is freezing sperm and egg cells the only option? Not necessarily.

We sit down with Professor Richard Anderson, Deputy Director of the University of Edinburgh’s Centre for Reproductive Health, to explore options that are available and what the future of fertility medicine could look like.

If you would like to learn more about cancer and fertility, here are some resources:

If you’d like to talk to someone, our nurses are available Monday to Friday 9-5pm on freephone 0808 800 4040.

You can listen and subscribe for free on Apple Podcasts, Spotify or wherever you get your podcasts.

And if you have a question you’d like us to answer or topic you want us to explore, you can send an email to [email protected] and tell us about your idea!
