  • Exercise Bike Query

    Hi,
    I am so sorry to be a nuisance here. I have one testis as the other one didn't develop. As I have been trying to keep healthy, I have recently invested in an exercise bike, but a family member said that exercise bikes can cause testicular cancer and I wondered if this is the case and whether I should stop using it consider this?

    I wish all of you a very happy New Year.

    Thank you in advance,
    Dalek.

    Hi Dalek,

    Cycling causing testicular cancer is kind of an older myth. The latest I have seen there is not enough data to show that it causes any issues. It was also reviewed in https://bmccancer.biomedcentral.com/...885-018-4093-3

    I would enjoy my exercise bike and congrats on the healthy activity.

    Mike
