Infertility among Men Linked to High Risk of Prostate Cancer

Posted by ProstateSeedIns on November 27th, 2019

Infertility among men has been linked to prostate cancer in later life. This has been proved in a study conducted and published in the British Medical Journal, where there has been a downturn in the total pregnancies. The cause has been male infertility, with more and more young men having low sperm count.

Most babies born between 1997 and 2014 were conceived naturally, although these numbers are decreasing year after year. In Britain today, IVF is becoming a prevalent method to conceive a child because of many problems, one of them being low sperm count.

In this study, those who conceived naturally, 0.28 percent were later diagnosed with prostate cancer compared to 0.37 percent of those who used alternative methods of conceiving. These men had a higher chance of developing prostate cancer, although this is not been directly linked to the artificial way the couple used to conceive.

The rise in male infertility may cause a severe problem for men's health worldwide, so men should be looking at ways to improve their sperm. Some cancer specialists have not yet found a link between the techniques used to aid in reproduction and prostate cancer, although more research needs to be conducted on this to better our understanding. Maybe the two have something in common. Men are advised to see their General Practitioner once a year to get tests done.

Some specialists do not want to jump the gun when it comes to these conclusions. They prefer a more thorough analysis, and research is done to make conclusive findings. They are laying to rest our fears on this.

Prostate cancer is prevalent among males aged 50 and above. Younger men are at a lower risk. This study needs to take a look at a more extensive age range, maybe 30 to 60 years for better results.

If the findings are accurate, they can better solve the questions most men have in their minds about male infertility and its link to prostate cancer.
