Text A1 Vasectomy: Texts Title: Risk of Prostate Cancer After Vasectomy (2003) Authors: Krishnamurthy, McLeod & Williams Context: Vasectomy is a common method of contraception, but concern exists about a reported association with risk of prostate cancer. Objective: To examine whether vasectomy increases risk of prostate cancer. Design, Setting, and Participants: National population-based case-control study of 923 new cases of prostate cancer among men aged 40 to 74 years from the Australia Cancer Registry who were on the general electoral roll. Controls (n = 1224) were randomly selected from the general electoral roll, with frequency matching to cases in 5-year age groups. Cases (3-15 months after diagnosis) and controls were interviewed by telephone over a 3-year period. Main Outcome Measures: Relative risk (RR) of prostate cancer for men who had had a vasectomy vs those who had not. Results: There was no association between prostate cancer and vasectomy (RR, 0.92; 95% confidence interval [CI], ) nor with time since vasectomy (RR, 0.92; 95% CI, for 25 years since vasectomy). Adjustment for social class, geographic region, religious affiliation, and a family history of prostate cancer did not affect these RRs. Conclusions: Vasectomy does not increase the risk of prostate cancer, even after 25 years or more.

A: Your scrotum will probably be bruised, swollen and painful. Wearing tight-fitting underpants, to support your scrotum, day and night for a week may help. You should avoid strenuous exercise for at least a week. For most men pain is quite mild and they do not need any further help. The doctor or nurse should give you information about how to look after yourself. Q: Are there any serious risks or complications? A: Research shows that there are no known serious long-term health risks caused by having a vasectomy. Occasionally, some men have bleeding, a large swelling, or an infection. In this case, see your doctor as soon as possible. Sometimes sperm may leak out of the tube and collect in the surrounding tissue as sperm granulomas. These may cause inflammation and pain immediately, or a few weeks or months later. If this happens, they can be treated. Some men may experience ongoing pain in their testicles. This is known as chronic pain. Treatment for this is often unsuccessful. The large majority of men having a vasectomy will have a local anaesthetic but sometimes a general anaesthetic is used. All operations using a general anaesthetic carry some risks, but serious problems are rare. Q: Can sterilisation be reversed? A: Sterilisation is meant to be permanent. There are reversal operations but they are not always successful. The success will depend on how and when you were sterilised. Reversal can be difficult and may cost a great deal because of this. Text A4 Reverse vasectomy: a case study Gary married young and had three children in his twenties. He had a vasectomy at 31. Then his first marriage broke down. He met Sarah and they decided they also wanted a family. Gary paid to have a reverse vasectomy operation but it wasn t successful. A second operation with a different urologist did succeed, and Sarah is now pregnant with their first child. Gary felt that the original vasectomy was the right thing to do at the time, but with hindsight he now believes men under 40 should not rush into having one if there is even the smallest chance they may want a child in the future.
