childAmerican scientists have observed that man over 40’s present a higher risk in conceiving a child with congenital malformations.

The explanation consist that after a certain age men are more likely to develop testicular tumors that canĀ  cause severe genetic malformations.

This tumors are like moles: they accumulate in time but they are inoffensive for the man. Nevertheless, professor Andrew Wilkes (study coordinator) states thatĀ  due to their testicular localization, the small tumors affect sperm quality and determine congenital malformations in newborns.
