Can testicular cancer affect my sex life?

Men who undergo surgery for testicular cancer can resume normal sexual activity a few weeks after surgery. Doctors recommend the break to avoid complications of a hernia after surgery. Men with only one testicle still make sperm and have normal erections. Some treatments, such as radiation and chemotherapy can lead to low testosterone levels and a loss of sexual desire. Hormone medicines can improve these side effects. Surgery to remove lymph nodes may result in orgasms not feeling the same as they used to.
