A gestational carrier may also be considered—with or without oocyte donation—depending on the patient’s acceptance of ovarian stimulation and pregnancy in the context of prior breast cancer or ongoing endocrine therapy. Lastly, adoption is a frequently considered option for family building by many breast cancer survivors.SummaryAssisted reproductive technology and adoption offer breast cancer survivors the opportunity to expand their families despite the challenges that the diagnosis may pose. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Current Breast Cancer Reports Springer Journals
