TESTICLE CANCER: Natural treatment

The testicular cancer is a rare disease, but it mainly affects  young men of reproductive age . Despite this, these tumors are curable in most cases and have a high survival rate. If testicular cancer is confirmed, all of these men are advised to  freeze their semen  before undergoing cancer treatment to maintain fertility.

The experts at the Center de Phytothérapie (Mes Plantes) recommend the early self-examination of the testicles to detect any sign, such as a mass and also provide you with a natural treatment based on medicinal plants to permanently cure testicular cancer. Click on the image below to discover this natural treatment.

Types of testicular cancer

Testicular cancer is the most common tumor in men  aged 15 to 40 .

Although its death rate has fallen very low in recent years, the fact that it affects men of childbearing age makes testicular cancer very serious for couples who wish to have children.

Testicular cancer and especially treatments to eradicate it (chemotherapy and radiotherapy) seriously affect male fertility.

The prognosis and treatment of testicular cancer depends mainly on the type of tumor.

More than 90% of testicular tumors are generated in germ cells, where spermatogenesis or sperm production takes place. For this reason, these tumors are also called  germ cell tumors  which are distinguished by the following types:

Seminoma

Seminomas represent about 40% of testicular tumors. They are characterized as slow growing tumors and usually do not spread to other parts of the body.

One of the tumor markers for this type of cancer is human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) hormone  , which is often elevated and used to diagnose testicular cancer. Additionally, seminomas are classified into two subtypes:

Classical seminoma
it is the most common and it usually affects men between the ages of 25 and 45.
Spermatocytic seminoma
it is very rare and occurs at an older age, around 65 years old.

As these are very slow growing tumors, their prognosis is very good and they are very sensitive to radiation therapy.

Non-seminomatous tumor

Non-seminomatous tumors represent about 60% of testicular tumors and usually appear very young (between 15 and 35 years old).

These tumors grow faster and are therefore more severe.

The main subtypes of non-seminomatous germ cell tumors are:

Embryonic carcinoma
it is the most common and the most aggressive because the tumor usually spreads quickly to other organs. The tumor markers for this type of cancer are hCG and alpha-fetoprotein (AFP).
Yolk sac carcinoma
it is the most common form in children and young people, with great healing potential. However, at an older age, they tend to be more complicated. The main tumor marker is also alpha-fetoprotein.
Choriocarcinoma
it is a very rare tumor that affects adult males. It grows very quickly and can spread to other parts of the body. The main tumor marker is also alpha-fetoprotein.
Teratoma
these are tumors that present cells from the three embryonic layers: endoderm, mesoderm and ectoderm. They often appear as part of mixed germ cell tumors and do not increase hCG or AFP levels.

Mixed germ cell tumors contain both seminoma and non-seminoma cells. This type of testicular cancer is treated the same way as non-seminomas because they grow and spread like these.

Risk factors

The exact causes of cancer are unknown, although it is known that a person's lifestyle may be related and increase the likelihood of developing some type of tumor.

Concretely, the risk factors for testicular cancer are as follows:

  • Cryptorchidism  : testis not descended after birth.
  • Family history of testicular cancer
  • HIV infection.
  • Environmental factors: men who are exposed to chemicals or radiation in the course of their work.
  • Genetic changes such as Klinefelter syndrome which cause abnormal development of the testes.
  • Race or Ethnicity: White men have a higher incidence of testicular cancer than African American men.

It should be noted that having one or more risk factors does not mean that a man will develop testicular cancer.

Symptoms and diagnosis

First of all, all specialists in this field stress the importance of early diagnosis of testicular cancer, so that easy and quick treatment can be applied to remove the tumor without seriously affecting human health.

For this, it is recommended that all young people, from school age, frequently perform  testicular self-examination in  order to detect any signs of cancer, such as the appearance of a lump in the testicular area.

Other signs and symptoms to look out for for testicular cancer include:

  • Inflammation or painless lump in the testicle
  • Change in the size, shape and / or texture of the testicle
  • Feeling of heaviness in the scrotum
  • Discomfort in the testicular area
  • Pain in the lower abdomen, back or groin
  • Fluid buildup in the scrotum
  • Breast enlargement or tenderness

Despite all of the above, some men do not have any symptoms of testicular cancer, and testicular cancer can only be detected by medical tests for other diseases. For example, by performing a  testicular ultrasound  in a male infertility study.

Treatment

Treatment for testicular cancer depends mainly on the type of tumor, its stage, and whether it affects one or both of the testes.

Here is a description of the most important cancer treatments:

 Herbal medicine

Surgery
Testicular ablation (radical inguinal orchiectomy) is indicated for all types and stages of testicular cancer. It has a very high cure rate, although it is sometimes necessary to combine surgery with chemotherapy or radiation therapy to prevent relapses.
Radiotherapy
it is very effective in tumors of the seminoma type. Strong energy rays are directed towards the testicular region, destroying cancer cells. Its cure rate is over 95% in the early stages, but it is not very susceptible to non-seminomatous tumors.
Chemotherapy
it is the treatment of choice when the tumor has spread to other parts of the body. These are drugs (bleomycin, carboplatin, etoposide or cisplatin, among others) to kill cancer cells.

Effects on fertility

Testicular cancer does not cause problems with male infertility. However, it is the cancer treatments that make it difficult for many boys to have children after they are healed.

The effects on male fertility will depend on the type of treatment. First, the removal of a testicle  does not alter  male sexual function or seminal parameters. The remaining testis is able to continue producing the same amount of sperm and sex hormones to meet all needs.

On the other hand, radiotherapy and chemotherapy affect the spermatogenesis of both testes and can cause  temporary or permanent infertility  depending on the aggressiveness of the treatment.

For this reason, the best way to become a parent in the future is to preserve fertility by freezing sperm. It is only necessary for the man to leave a semen sample in the laboratory after 3-5 days of abstinence.
