Hidden Link Between Prostate Cancer and Testicular Cancer - Dr. David Samadi
Date:4/5/2016

World renowned robotic prostate surgeon, Dr. David Samadi, encourages men to get annual cancer screenings, and stay proactive about their health. Major health risks for all men include both prostate cancer and testicular cancer. Both cancer have high cure rates and can be effectively treated, if they are caught early. This highlights the importance of screening for these male cancers and early detection.

Screening may be even more significant now as the American Society of Clinical Oncology, is confirming a link between prostate cancer and testicular cancer. According to a new study at the University of Maryland School of Medicine, men who have had testicular cancer may have an increased risk for prostate cancer. While there have been previous studies that have shown an increased risk of prostate cancer in men who have previously had testicular cancer, this is the first one to observe the risk of getting intermediate or high-risk prostate cancer.

Men who previously had testicular cancer were 5.8 percent more likely to get intermediate or high-risk prostate cancer, compared to 1.1 percent of men who did not have testicular cancer. Overall, men with a history of testicular cancer had a 4.7 times higher risk for prostate cancer and a 5.2 times higher risk for intermediate or high-risk prostate cancer.

Although further research is needed, physicians need to establish practical clinical recommendations for those men who have had testicular cancer, and may be at higher risk for prostate cancer. Understanding the risk factors of prostate cancer and other cancers can help men make the right decisions about their health and potentially screen more often than those without a history of another cancer. Furthermore, general health screening is important for all men, and should follow this general guide in every decade of their lives:
