What Is Testicular Cancer?

Combating cancer starts with being armed with essential information about the disease.

Testicular cancer is the uncontrollable growth and spread of cancer cells in the testes. The testes, also known as testicles, are a pair of male reproductive organs inside a sac-like pouch (the scrotum) found underneath the penis. They have two functions: to produce gametes (sperm) and to produce hormones, particularly testosterone.

Carcinoma of the testicle is rare and accounts for only 1 percent of all cancers arising in men. However, it is the most common cancer in men between the ages of 20 and 34.

Testicular Cancers We Treat at New Hope Unlimited

There are two types of testicular cancer, each with subtypes:

Germ cell tumors

These cancerous growths develop in the sperm-producing cells. Types of germ cell tumors include:

  • Seminomas. Half of testicular cancer cases are seminomas. In most cases, they are slow growing and responsive to treatment.
  • Nonseminomas. These malignant tumors grow and spread faster than seminomas. Common types of nonseminomas include embryonal carcinoma (about 20 percent of testicular cancers), choriocarcinoma, and teratomas.

Stromal tumors

occur in the testicular tissue, which is responsible for producing hormones. Types of stromal tumors types are:

  • Sertoli cell tumors. Begins in cells that nourish germ cells.
  • Leydig cell tumors. Develops in cells that produce male sex hormones.

Testicular Cancer Symptoms

This malignant disease often affects only one testicle. Signs of testicular cancer may include:

  • A lump or enlargement in either testicle
  • Change in consistency of the testes
  • Dull ache in the lower abdomen or groin
  • Scrotal or testicular pain
  • Enlargement or tenderness of the male breasts
  • A sudden heaviness in the scrotum due to fluid accumulation
  • Back pain, which may suggest cancer spreading

Speak with a medical professional if you experience one or more of the above symptoms. An accurate diagnosis, followed by proper treatment, may improve your testicular cancer prognosis and life expectancy.

Causes of Testicular Cancer

Little is known about what causes cancer of the testes. However, factors that may increase a man’s risk of testicular cancer include:

  • An undescended testicle (cryptorchidism)
  • Abnormal testicular development, such as Klinefelter syndrome
  • Race. Testicular cancer is more prevalent in white men
  • Infection with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) or AIDS
  • Family or personal history of testicular cancer

Note that not everyone with risk factors develops testicular cancer, and not everyone without risk factors is immune to the disease.

Diagnostic Tests for Testicular Cancer

If you have testicular cancer signs and symptoms, including an abnormal mass in the testes, your physician may recommend the following tests to determine whether a lump is cancerous:

  • Ultrasound
  • Blood tests
  • Surgery to remove a testicle (radical inguinal orchiectomy)

Once your physician confirms your diagnosis, the next step is to determine the extent (stage) of cancer and whether it has metastasized (spread) outside of your testicle. You may undergo:

  • Computerized tomography (CT) scan
  • Further blood tests

After these diagnostic tests, your testicular cancer is assigned a stage. The stage helps determine what treatment plans are best for your case.
