Testicular Cancer

Testicular cancer is the most common solid organ cancer in younger men, but rare overall. It accounts for 1% of all cancers in men each year.

The most common symptom is a painless lump in the testis. Men should be encouraged to examine their testicles on a regular basis. A man born with undescended testicles or who has a family history of testicular cancer is at higher risk.

Investigation includes and ultrasound scan and blood tests. If a testicular tumour is suspected, a CT scan will be arranged to check for disease spread. All men who wish to have a family in the future should be offered the option of sperm banking before treatment.

Treatment of a testicular cancer involves surgical removal of the affected testicle. Some men may require chemotherapy or radiotherapy.
