A Study Assessing the Effects of Chemotherapy or Radiation Therapy on Reproductive and Sexual Health in People with Early-Onset Colorectal Cancer


Full Title

The Effects of Chemotherapy or Radiotherapy on Reproductive and Sexual Health of Early Onset Colorectal Cancer Patients


The purpose of this study is to find out how cancer treatments (chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy) affect reproductive and sexual health in people with early-onset colorectal cancer (diagnosed before age 50). Researchers will observe and track changes in hormone levels and in sexual and reproductive health in the study participants. This information will help them learn more about how cancer treatments affect reproductive and sexual health, including the ability to have children (fertility).

Who Can Join

This study will include premenopausal women diagnosed with colorectal cancer between ages 18 and 40 and men diagnosed with colorectal cancer between ages 18 and 50 who are going to begin chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy for their cancer.
