Can radiation for synovial cell sarcoma cause infertility in men?

I Was A patient of synovial cell sarcoma.
It was in my right inguinal region.
I received Radiation from KIRAN (Karachi Institute of radiotherapy and nuclear medicine.)
Before that Doctors said to me that there is very much risk of infertility.
Because that area is very near to my testis.
but it would be revers-able.
My Question is Which Doctor Is helpful to me.

thank you for trusting HCM


dear radiating most commonly effects the cells on which dividing rapidly. so testis is always acting as respiratory production site for millions of sperm cells. so it will effect the production part. cause infertility. please consult your doctor he will examine and treat you accordingly. I think I answered to your question if you have more questions feel free to ask.
