Men who have had testicular cancer are more likely to develop prostate cancer
A case-control study of close to 180,000 men suggests that the incidence of prostate cancer is higher among men with a history of testicular cancer (12.6 percent) than among those without a history of testicular cancer (2.8 percent).

A new look at genes that cause testicular cancer
Since 1970, the incidence of testicular cancer in Australian blokes has doubled, while rates of other types of cancer have stayed the same. This is alarming news for thousands of young Australian men under the age of 35 who are most commonly affected by this type of cancer. However, scientists at The University of Queensland's Institute for Molecular Bioscience are gaining valuable insights into the genetic mechanisms contributing to this startling rise in testicular cancer. (2005-04-26)

In this week's journal Nature, researchers report finding the first gene responsible for inherited susceptibility of testicular cancer in mice. The Ter mutation occurs in a gene called dead end, which is involved in normal testicular development and which may play a role in inherited forms of a testicular cancer occurring in infants. The mutation causes a huge increase in testicular cancer incidence, from 5 percent to 94 percent. (2005-05-18)

Injection may prevent infertility in men receiving cancer chemotherapy
It may be possible to protect the testes of cancer patients against the loss of fertility caused by chemotherapy, a scientist told the 22nd annual conference of the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology in Prague, Czech Republic, on Tuesday 20 June 2006 by injecting a drug that enhances the immune system which could protect the testis from the effects of paclitaxel (Taxol), a widely used chemotherapy drug. (2006-06-20)

Young single men are more likely to bank sperm before testicular cancer treatment
A quarter of men with testicular cancer banked their sperm before treatment, but only six percent of those used the sperm to father a child. Men who banked their sperm averaged 26 -- 10 years younger than those who didn't -- and were more than twice as likely to be single. As most men treated for testicular cancer are young, and survival rates exceed 90 percent, post-treatment fertility is an important issue, say researchers. (2007-01-08)

Sperm quality unaffected by one course of chemotherapy for early testicular cancer
Men with early stage testicular cancer can safely receive one course of chemotherapy or radiotherapy after surgery without it having a long-term effect on their sperm count, according to a study published in Annals of Oncology. Until now, this has not been clear, although it is known already that several rounds of chemotherapy or high doses of radiotherapy given to men with more advanced testicular cancer can reduce sperm count and concentration. (2019-02-24)

New test to predict relapse of testicular cancers
Scientists have developed a new test to identify patients who are at risk of suffering a relapse from testicular cancer. Assessing just three features of a common kind of testicular cancer -- called non-seminomatous germ cell tumor -- can identify those at most at risk of relapse even where there is no evidence of tumor spread. The researchers believe the test could be used in the clinic to make decisions about which patients should be given chemotherapy. (2015-10-15)
