Here I am extending text found in my first book on ultrasound.
Mom is alarmed. Her child has one testicle bigger than the other. She takes him to a medico. The medico diagnoses the child with ultrasound, claiming a concern over possible cancer etc.
However, ultrasound is biologically destructive at the lowest intensities. It could be a carcinogen.
The question, "Does ultrasound damage the testicle", is popular on the Internet, but the mainstream answer is always, "Ultrasound is harmless". That answer is ostensibly designed to protect the patient from anxiety, and less known, to protect the doctor-patient bonding process -- all in the supposed interest of the patient.
Fetal ultrasound disrupts DNA, hormones, etc during fetal growth. The result is damage, e.g., testicle damage, conditions, inflammations including even mild types of cancer (as cancer is defined as a manifestation of damaged nucleic acid).
And now we have the conundrum: These ultrasound-caused conditions are being diagnosed with ultrasound!
There is an increasing annual incidence of testicular cancer, and many other diseases, as predicted decades ago, in the early 1980s, by ultrasound researchers at Columbia University.
Testicular cancer is not considered to be very dangerous, but it can accompany other forms of cancer. It supposedly is found in 1 out of 250 men nowadays. It is said to "spread" from the testicles to form other cancers.
But there is no spread; it is just the obvious, the medico's recognition of the most obvious symptoms of ultrasound damage. Medicine would rather blame a symptom on another symptom rather than on the industrial environment, in this case, ultrasound.
Suspect causative factors are clearly medical radiation such as ultrasound, EMF, and then air pollution or other pollution exposure, which ultrasound damage potentiates.
Hard simple science, experiments with pregnant women subjects, supports these commonsense thoughts about ultrasound:
Feng (1996) found damage from fetal ultrasound -- to the sperm stem cells (spermatogonia) contained in the testicles. See the reference below.
Using ultrasound to diagnose these stem cells would compound any possible problems, it seems obvious, since cancer is the result of genetic damage.
Fetal ultrasound, a diagnostic tool, damages the fetal testicle. Abnormalities of the testicle appear later to parents and medicos. Medicos then knowingly or unknowingly continue the trend of damage by the use of ultrasound diagnostics and treatments.
A testicle is a container of permanent stem cells which are used to generate sperm. These stem cells are "spermatogonia".
Ultrasound damages these stem cells in the male fetus, and damages the ova in the female fetus. Later, during any diagnosis that uses ultrasound, even more damaged (mutated) genetic matter is created. Mutated sperm and humans are the eventual result.
People are severely damaged before they are feti. Proof? Just look around, and compare generations. Look at the vast difference between grandparents, parents and children. Today's adult women weigh more than men from the 1960s. Today's women average 171 pounds and men average 200 pounds. Go to YouTube and see the talk show audiences from the 1960s. Beautiful normal people.

Effects Of Diagnostic Ultrasonic Wave On The Ultrastructures
of the Human Fetus Testicles During Mid-Stage Pregnancy
Fetuses with 20-28 weeks gestation age, destined to be aborted for whatever reasons, were divided into 4 equal groups (A, B, C, D).
Before abortion, mothers of each group received different diagnostic ultrasound irradiation [at mild intensity] for 5 min., 10 min., and 30 min., accordingly, except group D, which served as an unexposed control.
Results: After abortion, microscopically, the testicles of group C showed swollen spermatogonia with rarefaction of nuclear chromosome and obscurity of mitochondria structure with reduplication of splitting of basal membrane, but no change was found in other groups.
