Infertility

Infertility, or the inability to father a child, is a potential side effect of prostate cancer surgery or radiation therapy.

Surgery removes the prostate gland and seminal vesicles, the source of semen. Men who have had a radical prostatectomy can still experience orgasm, without ejaculating.

After radiation therapy, the semen may not transport sperm properly. Men who want to father children after their treatment may want to consider freezing their semen (containing sperm).
