Men do not often discuss this type of cancer which commonly occurs between the ages of 15 and 45. It usually appears in the testicles as a painless lump or mass and requires immediate medical attention and evaluation. Please do not wait until the mass becomes painful. Testicular cancer is treated with great success if there is an early diagnosis.
Check your testicles or “balls,” as referred to by men, on a regular basis, when you are showering. Often, a mass or lump is the only, early warning sign to indicate testicular cancer.
