My husband had treatment for testicular cancer 4 years ago and now we want to have children. Will any boys we have be at
an increased risk of the same disease because of what happened to him?
Most testicular cancers are not inherited. They just happen and we do not know all the reasons why. There is a small
family risk with testicular cancer. This risk is highest for brothers of men who have been diagnosed with testicular cancer
rather than for sons of fathers that have been diagnosed.
