A study of 577 cases of testicular germ cell tumors, the most common testicular cancer in young men, concluded that the rs2059693(T) allele increased risk. Among Caucasians, the odds ratio for the rs2059693(C;T) genotype was 1.33 (CI: 1.04-1.71), and for the (T;T) genotype, 1.60 (CI: 1.01-2.52, p(trend) = 0.008). The association with rs2059693 was even stronger for nonseminomas, and for teratomas and teratocarcinomas in particular (N = 58; (C;T) odds ratio 1.63, CI: 0.89-2.99; (T;T) odds ratio 4.54, CI: 2.00-10.3, p(trend) = 0.0008).[PMID 18413775]
