Testicular Cancer

Testicular cancer is a rare form of cancer that affects the testis and is characterized by a dull aching pain in the groin and abdomen. Other symptoms include a lump in the testicle, heaviness of the scrotum, backache, testis enlargement, and fluid accumulation in the scrotum. Factors that accentuate the risk of testicular cancer are age between 15 to 35 years, cryptorchidism, Klinefelter syndrome, and family history. Treatment involves surgically removing the testis and adjacent involved lymph nodes, radiotherapy, and chemotherapy.
