Cancer and degenerative disc disease

I had testicular cancer in 88' stage B. Lymph nodes were removed from my spine area. Now I have been diagnosed with degenerative disc disease and pinching of nerves, is there any relation between the two diseases?

Re: Cancer and degenerative disc disease

Hi Tom,

Prostate cancer is completely different from testicular cancer, and I doubt you'll find much knowledge about testicular cancer or the possible relationship to degenerative disc disease on this board. Is there a board for testicular cancer? If so, that would be a good place to post your question.

I did try this search string "testicular cancer AND degenerative disc disease" (without the quotation marks on www.pubmed.gov, but got no hits, leading me to think this relationship has not caught the attention of physician-researchers or researchers.

Re: Cancer and degenerative disc disease

I was told that there is no such thing as "degenerative disc disease ". Absolutely every person over 60 has it, so it's not a disease, it's just age. Go to a yoga instructor they can teach you moves to relieve the pain, it's easy, just get a private lesson, not group.
