Information on Testicular Cancer

Testicular cancer, a condition that occurs when cancerous cells develop in one or both testicles, affects an estimated 8,000 men each year. It occurs most often in men between the ages of 20 and 39.
 
Common symptoms of testicular cancer include:
 
  • A lump, swelling, or enlargement in the testicle
  • Pain or discomfort in a testicle or in the scrotum
  • An ache in the lower abdomen (stomach), back, or groin.
 
Fortunately, the condition is curable over 95 percent of the time. Surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy are some of the most commonly used treatment options.
