Patients with testicular nonseminoma have significantly increased cardiovascular disease mortality after chemotherapy.

Infertile men at a greater risk for all cancers

Infertile men at a greater risk for all cancers

Compared with the vasectomy and control groups, infertile men had a higher risk of testis cancer, non-Hodgkin lymphoma, and all cancers.

Muscle-building supplements may be associated with testicular cancer

Muscle-building supplements may be associated with testicular cancer

ASCO: Testicular cancer history may indicate greater risk of developing prostate cancer

ASCO: Testicular cancer history may indicate greater risk of developing prostate cancer

Individuals who've had testicular cancer may be at increased risk for prostate cancer, but the overall risk is low, according to a study.

Testicular cancer rates rising in young Hispanic Americans

By

A new analysis has found that rates of testicular cancer have been rising dramatically in recent years among young Hispanic American men, but not among their non-Hispanic counterparts.

Chemotherapy before radiotherapy could reduce long-term side effects in testicular cancer

By

Giving men with testicular cancer a single dose of chemotherapy alongside radiotherapy could improve the effectiveness of treatment and reduce the risk for long-term side effects, according to a new study.

Genomic regions associated with higher testicular cancer risk identified

By

Four newly identified genetic variants are associated with an increased risk of testicular cancer, according to a new study that examined the genomes of over 13,000 men.

AUA: Testicular cancer up through 2009, especially in Hispanic men

AUA: Testicular cancer up through 2009, especially in Hispanic men

The incidence of testicular germ cell tumors (TGCT) increased from 1992 to 2009, especially among Hispanic men.

Immediate health risks outweigh long-term radiation concerns for testicular cancer

Immediate health risks outweigh long-term radiation concerns for testicular cancer

Immediate health risks supersede lifetime radiation-induced cancer risk in patients undergoing computed tomography surveillance for testicular cancer.

Marijuana Use Linked to Higher Risk of Testicular Cancer

Marijuana Use Linked to Higher Risk of Testicular Cancer

Risk highest for nonseminoma and mixed histology tumors.

Diagnosis delayed for certain cancers and certain patients

A large UK study found a wide variation between cancer types in patients who had visited their general practitioner 3 or more times before cancer diagnosis.

Low increased risk of second cancer after radiotherapy

Only a relatively small proportion of second cancers in adults is related to routine radiotherapy administered for initial disease, according to the findings of a recent study.

Sperm retrieval offers fertility hope

Adult men who were thought to be rendered sterile due to chemotherapy for childhood cancer may be able to reproduce with the help of a surgical technique that has recently been shown to locate and extract viable sperm.

Mortality is higher when testicular cancer is diagnosed after age 40 years

Men who received a diagnosis of testicular cancer after age 40 years were twice as likely to die of the disease, according to the findings of a recent study.
