Testicular cancer


Testicular cancer occurs in the organs that make male hormones and sperm (testicles). The testicles are located inside a loose bag of skin (scrotum) underneath the penis.


Symptoms include a lump in either testicle and a feeling of heaviness or pain in the scrotum.


It's very treatable. Treatments include surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy.
