The risk may be low, but the concern is a big one. A study from the journal Cancer says that even occasional marijuana smoking may increase the odds of testicular cancer. It compared marijuana use between testicular cancer patients and a separate group of healthy men. Researchers found men who had a history of smoking marijuana were twice as likely to develop the more fatal types of testicular cancer, which is the most common form of the disease diagnosed in young men.
