A population-based case-control study on social factors and risk of testicular germ cell tumours. BMJ open. ;3(9):e Aetiology of testicular cancer: association with congenital abnormalities, age at puberty, infertility, and exercise. United Kingdom Testicular Cancer Study Group. BMJ (Clinical research ed). ;() BackgroundTesticular germ cell tumours (TGCT) are the most common cancers in men aged between 15 and 44 years and the incidence has increased steeply over the past 30 years. The rapid increase in the incidence, the spatial variation and the evolution of incidence in migrants suggest that environmental risk factors play a role in TGCT aetiology. The purpose of our review is to summarise .
What are the risk factors of testicular cancer? Anything which increases the possibility of getting the disease/cancer is known as a risk factor. The following are the factors which increase the risk of testicular cancer: Undescended testicle: Cryptorchidism or undescended testicles is one of the major risk factors for testicular cancer. One in three cancers is preventable. Cancer Council Australia has published the first ever comprehensive estimate of cancer incidence in Australia by modifiable risk factors – that is, the number of annual cancer cases attributable to known risk factors that can be controlled.. Published in the Australian and New Zealand Journal of Public Health in October , the study estimated that, in.
Occupational exposure to extreme temperatures may be a risk factor for testicular cancer independent of other potential confounding factors, although not all authors report this finding.5, 14 Experimental and human data suggest hormonal risk factors for testicular cancer. Testicular cancer is a relatively rare disease in Australia. The exact cause remains unknown, but there are several factors that may increase a man’s risk of developing testicular cancer. These risk factors include: Undescended testes (cryptorchidism) – men born with undescended testes are more likely to develop testicular cancer. Surgical.

Experts aren’t sure why, but the number of new testicular cancer cases diagnosed each year (called incidence) has steadily increased over the last several decades. 1. Introduction. The aetiology of testicular cancer is poorly understood and cryptorchidism, i.e., undescended testis, is the only established risk factor (Schottenfeldt et al., ).Prenatal factors have also been hypothesized to be of aetiological importance such as maternal hormonal levels (Bernstein et al., ).There is a growing interest in the possible role of.
Compared to the general population, an increased risk of testicular cancer was reported among men in the British Royal Air Force, with the highest risk was observed in men who worked on aircraft.
86 Similar results were found in a case-control study that examined the risk of testicular cancer among British Royal Navy personnel by occupational title. 87 Men in aviation-related occupations had double the risk of testicular cancer. Whether you or someone you love has cancer, knowing what to expect can help you cope.
From basic information about cancer and its causes to in-depth information on specific cancer types – including risk factors, early detection, diagnosis, and treatment options – you’ll find it here. This is the first report in the Cancer Risk Factors in Ontario series. It reviews the epidemiologic evidence linking a broad range of risk factors to various types of cancer in Ontario.

Examining the association between occupational exposure and incidence rates of testicular cancer over time in several countries may provide useful insights into the relative importance of lifestyle and environmental risk factors. The study by Ylonen et al.  assessed an ecological, rather than biological, effect of occupational exposure in order to understand differences in testicular cancer.For Australian men, the risk of being diagnosed with testicular cancer by age 85 is 1 in The rate of men diagnosed with testicular cancer has grown by more than 50% over the past 30 years, however the reason for this is not known.
