  • Hot Flashes and Testicular Cancer?

    Thank you to the many of you that participated in a research survey that we, the Testicular Cancer Society, developed in concert with researchers at the University of Central Florida several years ago.

    Our most recent publication to come from that survey showed a significant, although weak, association between hot flashes/night sweats and later stage diagnosis of testicular cancer. Hot flashes/night sweats appears to be a novel, uncommon/atypical symptom that drove patients to seek medical care for testicular cancer and will hopefully lead to further research.
