Muscle-Building Supplements Linked to Testicular Cancer

Posted 22 April 2015

This is a second perspective on a study that concluded that muscle-building supplements are linked to testicular cancer. The first was posted to CamCheck on 14 April 2015.

Men who use muscle-building supplements (MBSs) that contain creatine or androstenedione may have up to 65% increased risk of developing testicular cancer, according to a case-control study published online March 31 in the British Journal of Cancer.

This risk increased even more among men who began using MBSs before age 25, who used various kinds of MBSs, or who used them for a long duration.
