Hi,thanks for query.First of all for conceiving it is important to have normal sperms in semen.As long as the medicines for cancer are on it can affect the quality of sperms.Discuss this with your doctor and got semen examination to see the quality of sperms.After all the things become fine you can plan for baby.
wishing him speedy recovery.

My nephew has had testicular cancer with a recurrence probably in the past two years. A scan showed several swollen nodes in the abdomen and some lesions (?) in the lungs. He underwent some biopsies this past week. I think the surgeon referenced granulocytosis. What follow should he have? With whom? An oncologist? Hem-onc? what do you suggest? Thanks.

(Testicular Cancer Problem) Background Male Asian(Chinese and Cambodian)-American age 19~20 Problem: I just recently self examined myself for testicular cancer, but I can not currently tell exactly what I am feeling. Both my left and right testicles have no problems as in: no bumps on them, and no other weird feeling;however there is a distinct difference of the epididymis(i think ) between the left and right one. My left testicle seems to be covered/overlapped(closer towards the body side) by a rather large amount of material(the material is squishy and the amount is approximately the same volume as the testicle). My right testicle does not have such large material, but I do feel it having the epididymis. I also do not have/feel any of the symptoms from testicular cancer. Question: Should I immediately see my doctor? or Should I ask my doctor whenever I see him/her again?
