Risk of osteoporosis in testicular germ cell tumour survivors: A systematic review of the literature.

Vrouwe JPM, Hennus PML, Hamdy NAT, Osanto S, Willemse PM

Testicular germ cell tumour (TGCT) survivors are potentially at risk of developing osteoporosis, because of increased risk for disturbed bone remodelling associated with hypogonadism and anti-cancer treatment. A number of studies show bone loss and increased fracture risk in TGCT survivors, but data are scarce. There are no clinical guidelines or recommendations issued to address skeletal health in this group of patients potentially at high risk for osteoporosis.
