Résumé

Le cancer du testicule est la tumeur la plus fréquente de l’homme jeune. L’incidence du cancer du testicule est en augmentation depuis l’après-guerre dans la quasi-totalité des pays européens. En Europe, il existe un gradient Ouest-Est dans la région de la mer baltique, et un gradient Nord-Sud en Europe occidentale. Le taux d’incidence a doublé dans plusieurs pays, dont la France depuis 1970. L’augmentation de l’incidence affecte particulièrement la classe d’âge des adolescents et des hommes jeunes. Les raisons d’une telle augmentation restent incertaines, bien que de forts soupçons pèsent sur des facteurs environnementaux (perturbateurs endocriniens), qui pourraient également retentir sur la fertilité masculine et expliquer l’augmentation des anomalies de l’appareil génital mâle.
