Although : Although any doctor can order a semen analysis for your husband, he should have the test performed in fertility-based testing lab (one that specializes in semen testing), and it should be interpreted by someone with fertility expertise. A urologist is a good place to start. He or she can help your husband to have the test performed, perform a thorough history and physical exam and review/interpret the semen test results.

Currently : Currently there are no studies that suggest a linkage between cell phone use and testicular cancer. Interestingly however, there are data linking cell phone and sperm dysfunction and infertility. Testis cancer rates in developed countries continue to rise, and hopefully future, population-based studies will help us to understand the underlying cause of testis cancer.

Venous leak : Venous leak is a rare cause of erectile dysfunction. Diagnosis is generally made by eliciting a history of lifelong ed and then proving that arterial insufficiency is not present. You will need to see a urologist with expertise in ed and the ability to perform penile duplex doppler and possibly cavernosography/ cavernosometry - very specialized tests.
