Service in Vietnam and risk of testicular cancer

Service in Vietnam and risk of testicular cancer

Journal of the National Cancer Institute 83(20): 1497-1499

A recent survey of military working dogs, in service during the Vietnam conflict, reported a significantly increased risk of testicular tumours. To test the possibility that Vietnam service might also have led to an increased risk of testicular cancer in man, the authors conducted a comparative case-control study on 18-42-year-old men in the USA newly diagnosed with testicular cancer between January 1976 and June 1981.
