    No...why are you asking this question? Do you believe someone you know got hit and now has cancer?
    There are those who believe that dictionaries should not merely reflect the times but also protect English from the mindless assaults of the trendy.

    It's hard to say...

    Anytime you damage tissue and the areas surrounding it, you open the body up to a wide range of "risks" that it otherwise may not be exposed to.

    Getting punched in the breast by someone wearing padded gloves, while wearing breast protection of some sort, probably won't lead to anything long term or our over protective federal government would be all over it.

    Then again, women's boxing, as an example, probably hasn't been around long enough for any long term studies to have been done.

    Does this mean, based on my logic and theory, that anytime you cut yourself or bruise your skin that you're going to get cancer? Of course not.

    One thing I know, is that I am not an Oncologist and to the best of my knowledge have not met one in this forum as of yet.

    So all you're really getting from me is my "never been to medical school" opinon.

    Bruises and sore muscles maybe but unless they are punching an open wound with a glove laced with malignant cancerous cells there is going to be no cancer. More worry comes from punching people in the head to the point they are walking neurological damage victims waiting to happen-there are tons of reports on sports injuries including the effects of consistent concussions and loss of cognitive function over time.

    As I said, if there was really any concern, our overprotective government would be all over it.

    Where are you hearing these statements? I do not think anyone is actually going to believe that being hit in the breast or testicle is going to cause cancer, a sore day or two sure but not cancer. These are unsubstantiated statements made likely by fear mongering individuals who think everything causes cancer when that is not at all the case. There is no truth in saying it.

    Nope, not true. I am in the martial arts, I have been hit in many places many times, including my breasts, and never developed anything that causes cancer. Same thing with the males I've sparred with, but they wear cups anyway. I don't know where you heard that, but it's a myth.
