About Testicular Cancer

Testicular cancer is a disease in which cells in the male testes (the sperm-producing glands inside the scrotum) become malignant. Testicular cancer is rare – only about 8,000 new cases are diagnosed each year – but it is also the most common cancer among 15 to 34-year-old men in the United States. 

Testicular cancer is highly treatable, with more than 95 percent of patients cured. Regular self-examinations can help identify problems early on, increasing the likelihood of successful treatment.
