Boys and Men
Sperm banking is possible for most teenagers with cancer who must undergo fertility-impairing treatment.Several types of chemotherapy can damage the sperm-producing portion of the testes, while radiation of the testicular area can also lead to infertility. For this reason, infertility is very common among male survivors of childhood cancer. Freezing sperm is the most widely available method for fertility preservation, and patients as young as 13 are capable of producing semen samples with normal sperm counts.
Testicular Self Exam.
Over the past four decades, testicular cancer has equaled - and probably surpassed - Hodgkin's disease as the number one cancer in young men between the ages of 15 and 34. Overall, it is still a rare neoplasm; 1 percent of all male cancers are testicular, with an incidence of two per 100,000 in the adult male population. In teenagers and young men, however, the incidence may be as high as one in 10,000, and it may be slowly increasing.
