  • Right testicle

    If Iíve had cancer for 8 months in my right testicle, would I be showing any kinds of symptoms by now?

    The most common symptom is a painless palpable mass that is growing. If it's spread beyond the testicle to the retroperitoneal lymph nodes you'd feel back pain in your lower/mid back that was ratcheting up.

      Not necessarily, back pain is actually uncommon even when it's spread to the abdomen. As a rule, only very large tumors cause back pain.
