While testicular cancer can occur at any age, it’s most commonly diagnosed for males between the ages of 15 and 35. There are a number of different types of testicular cancer (based on the cells in the testes that develop the cancer). Testicular cancer caught in the early stages has a five-year survival rate of 95% according to the American Cancer Society.
Testicular cancer symptoms can vary from no symptoms at all to symptoms that can mimic other conditions (for example, testicular pain or swelling). Bottom line: If you experience any changes and/or discomfort in your testicles, talk to a doctor.
