Counselling on fertility-preservation therapy should be provided for all women and men who are highly likely to survive the disease, in whom pregnancy or paternity is compatible with the disease, who are at risk of a relevant reduction in fertility and for whom fertility-preservation therapy with a low risk to health is feasible. This means that a balance must be struck between advising as many patients with an indication for fertility-preservation therapy as possible, but also only treating those who will have a sufficiently high probability of benefiting from such therapy, thus avoiding overtreatment.
