Customer Question

I had my daughter via ivf. I have read various studies. A very large one from 2013 (in the U.K.) saying ivf babies are at no higher risk of developing cancer and then two other more recent but smaller studies (from Norway and Israel) saying that it increases a child's risk of cancer. Which study is most believable? Is my daughter at a higher risk of getting cancer?

It is very wrong to deduce from small number of study population as IVF births are so few. No reason for IVF births having any significantly higher risk of any disease. Good luck.
