Study in Denmark Shows Environmental Factors in Early Life May Influence Risk of Testicular Cancer

In a study done recently, researchers found that the number of incidents of testicular cancer among first generation immigrants to the nation of Denmark was much lower than that among native males.

And although there is no consensus as to what specifically is causing the variations in the rates of this cancer from nation to nation and thus the cancer itself, it’s quite possible that the results of this study can help researchers pinpoint it’s root cause by focusing future research on the environmental factors to which young male citizens of Denmark are exposed more frequently than their counterparts in other areas of the world.
Intriguingly, while rates of testicular cancer vary greatly across the world, Denmark itself happens to have one of the highest rates of incidence of any nation on Earth.
