  • new guy here with a question


    my names Jeff and I found out I had tc in my left testicle about 4 years ago when I was 14(not fun to tell your parents).

    anyway I heard that I'm at an increased risk of getting it in the right testicle. being still so young I'm naturally very worried about getting it again as I want to have kids.

    so I was wondering if anyone had specific stats or percentages of men who have gotten tc in the other testicle. if you could post links to the source that would also be great as well.

    I believe the odds are less than 4%, and I'll try to locate my source for that information later today.
