Testicular Cancer

What is testicular cancer? It is cancer that forms in one or both testicles.

How often does it occur? Testicular cancer is considered rare, as it accounts for less than 1 percent of all the cancers in men in the United States. It occurs most commonly in men ages 20 to 39. When detected early, testicular cancer is highly treatable.

According to the American Cancer Society, slightly more than 8,500 men are diagnosed each year with this disease and 350 die from it.
