I am hoping that OncoEndocrinology will become a specialty such as oncodermatology has in response to the oncology patient community needs. I suspect the development of a specialty will take some time, but the long term endocrine effects are across the cancer spectrum now.
Fertility preservation and long term planning as noted above can vary state to state and insurance plan to plan, sometimes at great personal cost. We will only find out more by doing research and following this population of patients.
