  • Any link between Radon and Testicular cancer?

    I just had my house tested for radon. I live in Kentucky which is a known hot-spot. The result for the basement came back high, around 3x the recommended max level by the EPA

    I can't find any studies regarding radon and testicular cancer, mainly just lung cancer. But still I can't help but wonder if there is any correlation
    Jan. 3rd 2011 - Right I/O. May 2011, recurrence; RPLND, 2xBEP.

    I've not heard of any correlation. The last I looked into it, they suspect something went wrong while in the womb to increase the odds of TC, so environmental factors don't seem to play a role as far as they know right now. Who knows what will turn up in the future?

    Jan, 1975: Right I/O, followed by RPLND
    Dec, 2009: Left I/O, followed by 3xBEP
