What causes testicular cancer?

Abnormal cells: Abnormal cells in testis multiply and become tumors. They are relatively uncommon tumors. But all men should prectice scrotal self examination on a regular basis (say x1/month), ideally in the shower.

What are the causes of testicular cancer?

What are the causes of testicular cancer?

Dumb luck: Apart from cryptorchidism, which greatly increases the risk, these seem to strike at random. There are two studies you may see that to me reek of bad science. In one, the men who had testicular cancer and wonder why were more willing to confess to having tried cannabis. In the other, men who'd lost a testis exaggerated their past athletic achievements. No, fitness doesn't cause cancer. ...Read more

What to do if i was just wondering how testicular cancer is caused, and what are signs of it?

Testicular mass: Usually painless. If this is not a cryptorchid testis and the person is not an intersex, it's basically dumb luck. There was a claim on an old retrospective study that physical fitness contributes to risk, but i believe this simply men exaggerating their achievements after losing a testis. Early puberty and lack of exercise are listed as possible risk factors. ...Read more

Marijuana is Safe: Hi; this myth that you have heard is not true. There is very little science that shows that marijuana is in any way physically harmful. Now that does not mean that one with an addiction or an addictive personality may have mental health troubles and have unwanted consequences when using this drug.

Could exposure to dioxin cause testicular cancer?

I say no: Probably no chemical exposure has been more deeply studied than that of vietnam vets and i could find nothing in the nih database to support this; there was a small increase reported in gulf war vets. Claims that testicular cancer results from too much / too little exercise or cannabis seem soft to me. Unless it's from cryptorchidism, don't look for a cause. ...Read more
