Testicular Cancer

Testicular cancer is usually first detected as a painless lump or swelling in the testicle. It is most often found by the affected person by self-examination, but may also show up during a routine physical or during a medical workup done for other purposes, such as an investigation of infertility. The cancer may give no warning signs or it may be accompanied by subtle symptoms, such as a heaviness or collection of fluid in the scrotum, a dull ache in the abdomen or groin, pain in the testicle, and/or an enlargement or tenderness in the breasts. These symptoms should be evaluated by a doctor, but men should keep in mind that they may be caused by conditions other than cancer.
