Causes | Risk Factors

Unlike other cancer in which risks have been tied to smoking, drinking or exposure to environmental chemicals, there are few known risk factors for testicular cancer. The main risk factors are cryptorchidism (undescended testicle) and Klinefelter’s syndrome, a congenital disorder. Men with a family history of testicular cancer are at higher risk.
