The DES Tragedy continues into a Third Generation:
A DES Daughter recently shared her story on how DES exposure affected her son, who is a DES grandson.
Her son was born with extreme hypospadias (worst degree possible) (the opening of the urethra was not at the top of the penis), and undescended testicles. It turned out that one of his testicles was up by his kidney so it was removed at a young age for fear it would become cancerous.
Unfortunately, her son did develop testicular cancer in the other one testicle while only in his 20's. The testicle was removed and it was found that no live sperm remained. Post operatively he was given radiation treatment.
The DES Community and the researchers know that DES has had a multigenerational affect. We need to hear more about what is happening with the Third Generation! Please contact DES Info at email@example.com.
The DES Tragedy continues and the DES Exposed are still awaiting an apology for this Tragedy and significant Medical Error!
