What cancer charity is there that fights cancer in men, women, and children equally?

What cancer charity is there that fights cancer in men, women, and children equally?

There may not be one: I'm not aware of a specific charity that donates to all groups equally. Even defining "equal" is tough - equal in terms of number of cases of cancer per group means that men and women will need a greater percentage of the proceeds. Equal in terms of number of years of life lost to cancer means that children have a stronger balance in the decision. Many groups do try to help all three groups.

Is it safe for men to have children at an advanced age? Is the sperm still healthy?

Is it safe for men to have children at an advanced age? Is the sperm still healthy?

Yes and no: The impact of age on the male is much less dramatic or predictable than that of females.Sperm generate from stem cells, millions at a time. The healthiest make the strongest swimmers and increases the prospect of a healthy outcome. Women are born with a finite # of eggs, subject to the toxic effects of time/drugs/radiation and the outcome of conception remains the quality of the young or old egg.

Is it possible for men with cystic fibrosis to still have children?

Is it possible for men with cystic fibrosis to still have children?

Yes but note:: 1. Cystic fibrosis may affect male fertility through a. Thick viscid semen b. Association with absence of the vas, the tubes that conduct sperm from testes to outside. Thick sperm can be easily handled with iui. Obstruction can be addressed through harvesting sperm from the testes and using it for ivf. 2. Genetic consideration: there is a risk of transmission of CF to children-genetic counseling.

Can male children feel as much pain when hit in the testicles as grown men?

Can male children feel as much pain when hit in the testicles as grown men?

Absolutely-: That pain is just as bad if you are 2, 20 or 70. These areas have large numbers of pain fibers and are very sensitive from day 1. In young kids the testicles are obviously smaller, so not as big of an area to actually get hit/injured, but when they are, just as painful.

It: It wouldn't be fair for me to try to diagnose this woman via an email. However, clearly there is a problem. When traumatized early in life, it can have far reaching effects into the future. A person who has issues with sustaining relationships might well benefit from therapy.

Can men with atypical cystic fibrosis have children? I have 2 children, I have no symptoms of CF and I am 32 years old. Never tested for CF.

Sometimes: Actually, there are several different reasons that men with classic cystic fibrosis tend to be infertile; CFTR is part of the molecular machinery of spermatogenesis. It depends on your mutation. I'm wondering what you're worried about. Best wishes.
