As marijuana becomes legal in many states for medical and recreational use, researchers are beginning to learn more about its potential benefits and risks.
Via a review article in JAMA Network Open, researchers concluded that there was not enough evidence linking marijuana to lung, head and neck or oral cancers. But they did find a possible link to smoking marijuana and testicular cancer.
"There was a slightly higher risk of testicular cancer in patients who were marijuana smokers for more than 10 years," said Dr. Abhinav Sidana, assistant professor of surgery at the University of Cincinnati and director of urologic oncology with UC Health.
