In a 25-year follow-up study of 44 864 men with measured serum cholesterol levels, the testicular cancer hazard ratios for the serum cholesterol categories 5.7–6.9 and ≥7.0 mmol l-1 vs the reference category (<5.7 mmol l-1) were 1.3 and 4.5, respectively; P-value for trend=0.005. This highly significant association suggests that high-serum cholesterol is a risk factor for testicular cancer.
