April is Testicular Cancer Awareness Month

Each April, public awareness and education is shared during Testicular Cancer Awareness Month. Testicular cancer commonly affects young men between 20 to 40 years old, when they are in their prime age for building careers and families.

Can Cause Inability To Reproduce

Testicular Cancer is curable if diagnosed and treated in early stages.  In advanced stages, as with certain types of cancers, treatment may require radiation, chemotherapy or even surgery. In turn, these treatments can affect adversely a man’s ability to produce children. 

Freezing Sperm Option

Men faced with testicular cancer have the opportunity to freeze their sperm for long term storage for fertility preservation.  Southwest Fertility Center offers sperm freezing for fertility preservation to men faced with testicular cancer. 

Sperm cryopreservation is a very established and safe procedure. Millions of children born are born from artificial insemination, or Invitro Fertilization, using frozen thawed sperm for various Fertility challenges.
