3 doctors agree
In brief: Yes
Yes cancer patients can use a surrogate but not always necessary.
Surrogates used when the mother cannot carry a baby. Some cancer patients should not become pregnant or at least not for a very long time and surrogates are an option in this situation. Discuss with oncologist and rei for direction. Costs are high. Get oocytes/embryos frozen before ca treatment. Best wishes.
