The two main cancers of the male reproductive system are prostate cancer and testicular cancer, which have completely different epidemiological behaviors. Prostate cancer is one of the most common cancers in men, with an incidence strongly related with age, making it a cancer that mainly affects older men. Conversely, testicular cancer is quite rare and generally affects young men, with an incidence peak at age 35 years.
