Approximately 8000 men are diagnosed every year with testicular cancer in the United States. A first-of-its-kind study looked at whether or not marijuana use increases the risk. Dr. Stephen Schwartz, one of the researchers on the study and professor of epidemiology at the University of Washington, discusses his findings with host Dr. Shira Johnson. The two discuss how the research was conducted, who took part, and what needs to be done in the future to find more definitive answers.
