Dr. Williams Featured in Articles on Testicular Cancer and Sperm Count

Daniel Williams M.D. has been quoted in several periodicals regarding a study he led of 400 men with various types of cancer.

The study found that men with non-testicular cancer generally had normal sperm counts and motility, while men with testicular cancer had significantly lower sperm counts. Chemotherapy and radiation treatment can further reduce counts or completely destroy the ability to produce sperm. Dr. Williams recommends that men bank sperm before treating their cancer. “Because of advances in treatment, young men of reproductive age who get testicular cancer have excellent survival rates. Because of this, it’s very important for us to also focus on quality of life after treatment,” says Williams. Copyright © 2017 The Board of Regents of the University of Wisconsin System
