Cancer is a
relatively rare form of cancer. Although testicular cancer 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
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
