ED Not Inevitable After Testicular Cancer Treatment


The American Cancer Society estimates that 9,310 new cases of testicular cancer will be diagnosed in 2018.

For a young man at or near the peak of his reproductive life, a diagnosis of testicular cancer can be devastating. And this is a cancer that tends to strike young men disproportionately — the average age of a testicular cancer patient at diagnosis is 33.

Such a diagnosis understandably stirs up fears about the young man’s mortality, future sex life, and his ability to father children. Fortunately with respect to mortality, this particular cancer has an extremely low death rate. The five-year survival rates for localized and regional testicular cancer are 99 and 96 percent, respectively.

Most ED Symptoms Are Easily Overcome

The outlook for a fulfilling sex life after treatment is also relatively bright, although some symptoms of erectile dysfunction might be experienced in the immediate aftermath of cancer treatment. Researchers have determined that most of these ED symptoms are psychological in nature and that there are usually no real physical barriers to erectile function. They have also found that treatment with Viagra or one of the other PDE5 inhibitors can help testicular cancer patients to recover more rapidly.

Sadly, testicular cancer treatment can significantly reduce a man’s chances of fathering children. Most treatments involve the removal of one testicle, which automatically lowers a man’s sperm count sharply. Because treatment for this form of cancer makes it harder to father children, some patients bank some of their sperm before treatment begins. This gives them a better chance of achieving fatherhood at a later date.
