What Is Testicular Cancer?

Testicular cancer develops from within the cells in the testes. It usually presents itself as a lump in the testicle.

Regular self examination can help to detect this cancer at an early stage.

If the cancer is not treated at an early stage, cancer cells can break away and spread to nearby lymph nodes or other organs.

If a lump or change in the testicles is identified, a GP will arrange for a diagnostic test to indicate if the lump is benign or a possible cancerous tumour.

Most lumps are not cancerous but it is important to get yourself checked out by your GP to be sure.
