Dear Matthew, it is possible that severe schistosomiasis may cause
intense granulomatous epididymitis which can cause inhibition of
spermatogenesis and thereby causing male infertility. It is suggested that you
make an appointment with an urologist or fertility specialist who will be able
to test whether you have normal sperm that will enable you to procreate.
Schistosomiasis is not known to be associated with any malignancy other
than bladder cancer – although there seems to be limited and controversial
evidence suggesting that it may also be a possible risk factor for liver
cancer. A visit to your treating physician should be considered. (MCH).
