    Fertility after breast cancer treatment is an important issue for many, many younger women diagnosed with breast cancer.

Dr. Matteo Lambertini, adjunct professor of medical oncology at the University of Genova - IRCCS Policlinico San Martino Hospital, is corresponding author of the study.

    Listen to the episode to hear Dr. Lambertini explain:
