Chemotherapy sexual and reproductive effects 

Chemotherapy can affect reproductive organs and may result in changes in sexual functioning. While most people diagnosed with lung cancer are out of their reproductive years, not all are and there may be concerns with protecting the ability to have children. Potential changes in sexual functioning, whether physical or emotional, may be a concern for all.
