Our site has grown to be more that just
information on testicular cancer. The focus of this site is our
testicular cancer support forums, where you can share your
experience with and/or get answers to your many questions about
Testicular Cancer is a relatively rare form of
cancer. Although it accounts for only 1 percent of cancers in men,
testicular cancer is the most common cancer in men between the ages of
20 and 34. About 75% of cases of testicular cancer occur in men between
20 and 49. Nevertheless, testicular cancer is one of the most treatable
forms of cancer, with cure rates approaching 100% if detected early.
Additionally, testicular cancer is more common in white men than black
or Asian men.
Most testicular cancer cases are found by men
themselves when doing a self-examination or by accident. The testicles
are smooth, oval-shaped, and rather firm. Men who examine themselves
routinely become familiar with the way their testicles normally feel.
Any changes in the way they feel from month to month should be checked
by a doctor, preferably a urologist. Learn More About Testicular Cancer >>
