What's new?

Do children born after fertility treatment have a higher risk of cancer? In this report, the authors conducted a cohort study measuring how often children born from infertile mothers developed cancer. People whose mothers had fertility problems had a higher risk of cancer in childhood and young adulthood than those born to mothers without fertility problems. This study is the largest cohort study to date to measure this risk, and if these risk estimates are accurate, indicate about 13 additional cancer cases per 100,000 exposed individuals.
