Gender Affirming Hormone Replacement for the Adolescent and Young Adult Cancer Survivor with Hypogonadism.

Summary of "Gender Affirming Hormone Replacement for the Adolescent and Young Adult Cancer Survivor with Hypogonadism."

Hypogonadism is a known late effect of cancer treatment. Hypogonadism requires replacement of sex steroids to ensure appropriate development of secondary sex characteristics, growth, and other beneficial health effects. We present a cancer survivor with hypogonadotropic hypogonadism and gender dysphoria. The patient received gender affirming care in our gender clinic with a multidisciplinary team that included an endocrinologist. This is not an isolated case at our institution. Survivorship oncologists must include a discussion about gender concurrently with conversations about survivors' development of puberty. Conversations should start early to ensure appropriate referrals and gender affirming hormone replacement.
