About Testicular Cancer
Testicular cancer is the most common cancer in American males between the ages of 15 and 34.
Testicular cancer occurs in the testicles, which produce male sex hormones and sperm for reproduction. Typically, a painless lump is felt in the scrotum. When testicular cancer spreads, the cancer cells are carried by blood or to the lymph nodes in the abdomen.
Types of Testicular Cancer
- Seminoma: A slow-growing cancer that typically stays just in the testes, but can spread to the lymph nodes. It is most common in men in their 30s and 40s.
- Nonseminoma: Most common type of testicular cancer. Usually grows and spreads more quickly than seminomas
