Both medical and non-medical factors have equally contributed to the emerging field of oncofertility. It is a microcosm of the medical, cultural and personal that shapes this field including, but not limited to: changes in cancer research, survival rates and treatment; cancer as a publicly acknowledged diagnosis; and a growing cultural acceptance of assisted reproductive technologies (ART).
