Diseases affecting the human body are full of mysteries. Cancer is often related to misinterpretations or myths. Even though it's pretty common for all diseases to be misunderstood, diseases targeting sensitive areas are the most myth-laden. For instance, men's testicular cancer is a rare, but treatable medical condition in men. For many years, testicular cancer was mired in myths. For instance, some people are still bogged down with the silly idea that riding a bicycle increases the risk of this disease. Here are another two myths debunked. Myth 1 - Surgeries can make testicular cancer spread. This wrong notion originated decades ago. As patients were in the advanced stages of the disease, it was too late for them to get treated when they sought medical help. Doctors operated just to find that the testicular cancer had already spread too much. Surgery is done to stop the tumors from spreading. Testicular cancer, however, presents a greater challenge. For the majority of the tumors, minor procedures can be performed to entirely remove them. In case, the testicular cancer is confirmed, the whole testicle is removed. The procedure is known as orchiectomy. So there's no chance for this type of operation to make the tumor spread to the rest of the body. Myth 2 - Testicular cancer ends sex life. Just as we mentioned, surgeries for this cancer generally involve the removal of one or both the testicles. Since men relate their manliness to their balls, it is natural to think that their sex life will end as the testicles are removed. But despite this notion, the ending of sex life is a myth. In most cases, merely 1 testicle is surgically removed. And the truth is that most men won't even notice any difference in their sex drive or ability to have children. Removal of both testicles, however, does result in lower interest in sex, but the guy can still have children if they have some of their semen stored. Finally, keep in mind that it isn't old men's disease and it can happen to men of all ages.
