Testicular Cancer

Testicular cancer is a cancer that occurs in one or both of the testicles—an organ that is part of the male reproductive system.  It most often affects men in their twenties, and is one of the most common and most curable of all cancer types.  Similar to breast cancer in women, men should conduct self-exams to check for lumps of any size so that any new growth can be examined by a doctor.  While treatment for testicular cancer is effective in eradicating the cancer, it can also leave a mean sterile. There are several treatment options for testicular cancer depending on the stage of the cancer.
