If I have fallopian tube cancer, will I be able to have children?

This is a question you should discuss with your doctor, as treatment options for this condition may take into account your personal situation, including age, medical history, stage at diagnosis, and desire to have children. However, if you are diagnosed with fallopian tube cancer, you may need to have a total abdominal hysterectomy followed by chemotherapy. A total abdominal hysterectomy will prevent you from having children. Again, this is an important issue to discuss with your doctor.
