Cancer treatment — and cancer itself — can threaten fertility. This is a tremendously important survivorship issue for many people. As an oncologist, I’m often asked questions about preserving fertility during cancer treatment. If this issue affects you, here is an overview of key options. When should you talk to your cancer team about fertility? Future children may not be foremost on your mind when you are diagnosed with cancer. Soon afterward, though, it’s worth talking to your doctor about fertility issues, if this is important to you now or might one day become important. Your doctor can explain...

CONCLUSIONS: Recent work has identified associations between a number of malignancies and benign urologic conditions including male infertility, Peyronie's disease, cryptorchidism, and hypospadias. Molecular and genetic mechanisms have been proposed, but no definitive causal relationships have been identified to date. Future work will continue to better define the links between malignancy and benign urologic conditions and ultimately facilitate risk stratification, screening, and treatment of affected men.

Authors: Anderson RC, Newton CL, Anderson RA, Millar RP Abstract The gonadotropin receptors, luteinising hormone receptor, and follicle-stimulating hormone receptor, play a central role in governing reproductive competency/fertility. Gonadotropin hormone analogues have been utilised clinically for decades, in assisted reproductive therapies, and in the treatment of various infertility disorders. While these treatments are effective, the clinical protocols demand multiple injections, and the hormone preparations can lack uniformity and stability. The past two decades have seen a drive to develop chimeric and modifie...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewNon-standard shift work schedules negatively impact the overall health of shift workers, and several studies have shown that shift work, specifically, is detrimental to urogenital health. The aims of this study are to systematically review the literature and determine the effect of shift work on the outcomes of hypogonadism, male infertility, lower urinary tract symptoms, and urogenital cancers.Recent FindingsRecent evidence supports associations between non-standard shift work and an increase in the frequency of prostate cancer and the severity of erectile dysfunction, lower urinary tract symptoms...

Abstract Selenium is an essential trace element, the deficiency of which leads to the development of several serious diseases, including male infertility, prostate cancer, etc. It has been shown that oxidative stress contributes to the progression of prostate cancer, and antioxidants such as selenium and vitamin E can significantly reduce the risk of this disease. Sodium selenite, one of the selenium compounds that induce the formation of reactive oxygen species, is considered as a potential anticancer agent. The SS concentrations that lead to a decrease in the viability of human prostate adenocarcinoma cells (lin...
