Abstract: 

Background: the effects of infertility and its treatment of cancer risk are concern to many fertile couple, severe forms of male-factor infertility are associated with an increased risk of testicular and prostate cancer and scrotal ultrasonography is widely used for diagnosis. This study explored the association between male infertility and subsequent development of cancer.
Materials and methods: this is a systematic review article, which used up to date references and reviewed 10 articles.
Results: some data identified that men with male factor infertility have an increased risk of subsequently developing testicular cancer, suggesting the existence of common etiologic factors for infertility and testicular cancer. These data demonstrate that testicular tumors can present in an infertility clinic among men with normal as well as abnormal semen analysis. Additionally, men with male factor infertility were found to have an increased risk of subsequently developing high-grade prostate cancer. Male infertility may be an early and identifiable risk factor for the development of clinically significant prostate cancer. On multivariate analyses, men with male factor infertility were found to be 2.6 times more likely to be diagnosed with high-grade prostate cancer.
Conclusion: relationship between cancer and infertility is the possibility that men with testicular dysfunction may have an increased risk of testicular and prostate cancer. These men should be aware of the existence of higher risk of cancer and screening for early testicular and prostate malignancy may therefore be advisable in some groups of men with poor semen quality.
