While no direct cause has been shown, factors increasing the risk of Testicular cancer include abnormal testicle development, family history and being fair skinned. A factor increasing cancer risk generally is a weakened immune system due to illness, medications, surgery or poor diet. For more information, here are the most recent top-selling books on Testicular Cancer Signs and Treatment.
Signs and symptoms include a painless lump or swelling in either testicle, a change in how the testicle feels, a dull ache in the groin, a buildup of fluid in the sack surrounding the testicle, discomfort in a testicle or the sack.
Unfortunately, even early stage testicular cancer usually requires removal of the affected testicle. The remaining treatment varies based on the type and stage of the cancer. For some types, follow on radiation treatment is recommended...for others, chemotherapy. Often, testicular cancer treatment results in infertility. At the mid to later stages, more invasive surgery is required, including removal lymph nodes, surrounding tissue. In some cases, the cancer may spread to lung, brain and other organs. Treatment options at that point depend on location and severity of the tumors.
