Does the diet affect the risk of testicular cancer?

Possibly. We don't know with any certainty whether diet can affect the development of testicular cancer. Dairy has been implicated in the past, but this is not conclusive. Environmental carcinogens are a potential risk factor. Learn more about anti-cancer nutrition here: www.Integrativeoncology-essentials.Com.

Does supplementing with Creatine increase risk of testicular cancer? Thanks.

No. The stuff is remarkably safe. There may be a junk science study claiming a correlation. If there is, ignore it. I would know about anything real, and anybody can do a bad study that shows anything causes anything. Read more...

If a person has had stuttering priapisms lasting for weeks, is there a risk of testicular cancer occurring eventually?

No need for concern. I cannot find any medical literature evidence that testicular cancer is caused by priapism. Although priapism can be painful, there is no need for you to have concern for testicular cancer from this. On the other hand, testicular cancer is a very rare cause of priapism, but in that case it is always advanced and easy to detect. Read more...

Could an inguinal hernia repair elevate the risk of testicular cancer?

Not really. Testicular cancer risk could increase in case of undescended testicle that could be associated with hernia repairing the hernia and bringing the testicle down right around birth could decrease that chance but in later ages most likely testicle has to go while repairing the hernia because the risk is too much now regular hernia repair has no effect on testicular cancer.

Asked a question about testicular cancer and because of my age was told that its seen in 26 to 32 year olds and young boys don't get it. Is this right?

Sort of... The age range from the mid-20's to the mid-30's is when guys are most likely to get testicular cancer. On average, about 1-2 men out of 10, 000 in that age group will get the cancer. Younger or older men can still get it, but it's more unlikely to happen. Life is not exact, so anything can happen if a person is very unlucky. A doctor's evaluation can put one's mind at ease.
