Education & Diagnosis
Testicular cancer is rare but is the most common type of cancer in younger men between the ages of 15 and 35. Testicular cancer usually presents as a lump on the testicle. It occurs when abnormal cells grow rapidly in the testicles, most frequently starting in the cells that produce sperm.
Testing & Treatment
The most common symptoms include a lump or swelling in the scrotum. Men often discover a lump on their testicle and report it to their physician. In most cases, the doctor may order blood tests, and perform an ultrasound or CT Scan. Surgery is the only way to definitively treat testicular cancer.
