What are the types of testicular cancer in men?
To broadly classify them, it’s of 2 types:
Occur in all ages and not aggressive at all. The treatment for the same is radiation therapy.
Occurs in an earlier stage of life and spreads fast. The treatment option best suited for this is chemotherapy.
How testicular cancer affects fertility in men?
The testis is susceptible to chemo and radiation. Through any of these treatment plan, the sperm cells are damaged. This is a major reason that males are diagnosed with azoospermia or oligospermia. If you are going to conceive in the future, then it’s better to take the benefit of fertility preservation methods.
What are the options to preserve male fertility?
Male can get their sperm frozen before undergoing testicular cancer treatment. The sperm is kept frozen and later when they are ready to start a family, these sperm can be used with IVF/ICSI.
TESE (Testicular tissue cryopreservation) is a treatment plan which works great for men diagnosed with azoospermia. During this treatment plan, the tissue is extracted from the testicle, and sperm is taken through the biopsy. When the sperm is found, it will be frozen till the time you are not ready to conceive.
While doing radiation therapy, the shields are kept over the testicles which helps to limit the damage to that specific area. So, in the case of radiation & chemotherapy, this option will make a difference.
