Although less is known about the consequences of diethylstilbestrol exposure in men than in women, studies have confirmed some important health concerns. It is estimated that as many as half of all DES Sons are currently unaware of their exposure & risks.

As a DES daughter myself, my children have had problems linked to it as well. My son has had to have a lumpectomy procedure done, and my daughter had to have a lump in her breast biopsied (turned out to not be cancer). Scary that they have problems also a generation later.
