Between 1994 and 2014, more than one million births and cancer cases that occurred during this period were analyzed.
The overwhelming majority of children, 97 percent conceived naturally, 1.7 percent, 20 618 children with artificial insemination, although the data did not indicate that the woman or male had a fertility problem because of the infertility problems they had treated before the father and a good quality of his sperm was selected and delivered to the mother's egg. This procedure - that ICSI (intracytoplasmic sperm injection) - first applied in Sweden in 1992, all cases have been reported since then.In the group of naturally conceived children, there are 3244, or 0.28 percent, diagnosed with prostate cancer in the father. In the group of children conceived by artificial insemination, the father had a prostate rate of 77, that is, 0.37%, and a group of 63 men, or 0.42%, in the ICSI group. higher risk of developing early prostate cancer before age 55. Leading research Yvonne Lundberg Giwercman professor told the BBC that while prostate cancer cases were low, the affected men were too young. "There is a small, high-risk group that needs attention," he said, hoping to do another research it also explains the relationship they found.Allan Pacey, a researcher at the University of Sheffield pointed out that in men's health, being productive can be an early warning factor.
