Most common cancer among men ages 20 to 35
This April, during Testicular Cancer Awareness Month, spread the word about the most common cancer among men ages 20 to 35.
Testicular cancer affects the testicles, or testes, which make sperm and are organs of the male reproductive system. This cancer is more common in white men and men who have had abnormal testicle development, had an undescended testicle, or a history of the cancer.
Most cases can be treated successfully, even if diagnosed late. But, for better outcomes, awareness and regular health checkups are important.
Symptoms of testicular cancer can include pain, swelling, or lumps in the testicles or groin area. If you or someone you love notices any of these signs, talk to a health care provider as soon as possible, to rule out other conditions.
