    New research has found that taking muscle-building supplements may increase the risk of developing testicular cancer up to 177 percent. 

    Q: I took protein and creatine supplements as a teenager. What can I do now to counter this rather alarming connection?

    A: There is really nothing to do to counteract the effect, but to be honest, this proposed link is still considered controversial. One suggestion is to perform monthly testicular self-examinations and see a doctor if you note any changes or the development of a mass.

    —Christopher G. Wood, MD, FACS, professor of urology at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center
