Cancer RatesEdit

Better defined: Ovarian cancer is essentially a mathematical impossibility since the population at risk (middle age and older transmen who are on HRT and who have retained their ovaries,) is simply too small for a disease with such a low prevalence even if the N of the study was 'every single person on the planet in this group.' With endometrial and cervical cancer its within the realm of epidemiological possibility, but I imagine with the amount of funding available to transgender research, that will finally be discovered just a few weeks before the eventual heat death of the universe.

Curious, why don't they just use tissue removed from the breast since they're removing it anyway? Karmafist 05:32, 25 November 2005 (UTC)

Breast tissue is mainly fat and connctive tissue, not a good material to make a penis from. // habj (talk) 14:58, 13 August 2008 (UTC)

Genital reassignmentEdit

The article does not mention how comparably poor the results of FTM genital reassignment is, compared to nature and to FTM genital reassignment. It says that phalloplasty is less close to replicating nature than metoidioplasty, and regarding physiology that is true of course. The clitoris is the corresponding body part to the penis, so it makes sense. However, phalloplasty probably yields more cosmetically "close to nature" results, regarding size etc. The section should be expanded. // habj (talk) 14:58, 13 August 2008 (UTC)

Article appears to have been vandalizedEdit

If you meant the edits by Fluke.magik (talk · contribs) that was not vandalism but good faith edits although violating No original research policy as can be evidenced quite simply by this edit in which the writer tries to reference himself! I restored a previous version. -- œ 15:59, 3 July 2009 (UTC)

Why the link to "Clitoridectomy"?Edit

I didn't think clitoridectomy was a normal part of SRS for trans men. It certainly isn't part of any of the surgeries described in this article. Is that an appropriate link to have here? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 02:51, 4 August 2012 (UTC)

Thyroid issuesEdit

I have hashimotos and I’m considering getting my thyroid removed, would this affect my plan to get sex reassignment surgery? I’ve looked around and can’t find the answer anywhere, please help me figure this out. AmericaTheFree (talk) 03:04, 20 November 2017 (UTC)
