Testicular Cancer May Raise the Risk of Prostate Cancer

The findings of a new study have revealed that individuals having testicular cancer have a higher risk of developing prostate cancer as well. The researchers examined 180000 men for the study and found that prostate cancer was more likely to develop in those who have a history of testicular cancer than those who didn’t.

While the findings of this single study are not enough to make any solid decisions, but they can provide enough groundwork to inspire more studies to be carried out to understand the link between these two cancers- the researchers believe.

The researchers also recommend that men with testicular cancer must talk to their doctor about assessing the risk of prostate cancer.

The researchers analysed data from the Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results study and took into consideration 147,044 men with a history of melanoma, and 32,435 with a history of testicular cancer. The researchers found that the patients developed prostate cancer around 30 years after they were diagnosed with their first cancer, however, the incidence of prostate cancer dramatically rose in the group with testicular cancer as opposed to the melanoma group.

Overall, testicular cancer was linked to 4.7 times higher risk of prostate cancer risk, and 5.2 times higher risk of developing high or intermediate risk cancer. The American Cancer Society claims that around 220,800 new cases of prostate cancer will be diagnosed in the US in 2015, and of those affected by the cancer already, 27,540 will pass away.

Prostate cancer most commonly affects older men, and it is estimated that 1 in every 7 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during their lifetime. Infact, prostate cancer is the second leading cause of death in the world in men.
