Testicular cancer: Speak openly - Get informed!

Compared to other types of cancer, testicular cancer is rare, but it is the most common cancer in American males between the ages of 15 and 35.

In UK 2,288 new cases of testicular cancer were reported in 2015, and 57 deaths from testicular cancer, in 2016. In the early stages, testicular cancer is highly treatable (over 98%). Preventable cases of testicular cancer are not known as it is not clearly linked to any preventable risk factors.

When to see a doctor

See your doctor if you detect any pain, swelling or lumps in your testicles or groin area, especially if these signs and symptoms last longer than two weeks.
