Testicular cancer has a VERY high survival rate when caught early. In fact, treatment is so effective that the risk of dying from this form of cancer is about 1 in 5,000. That's why it is so important for men to know the symptoms. They include: --A lump, SWELLING, and/or enlargement in either testicle, which is usually painless --However with larger tumors there may be discomfort or PAIN in the testicles --A feeling of HEAVINESS in the scrotum --A dull PAIN in the abdomen and/or groin --A sense of pressure in the lower back --A rapid pooling of FLUID in the scrotum Symptoms of less common testicular cancer types include LOSS of sexual desire, enlargement of the breast tissue and, in boys, early growth of facial and/or body hair. Sometimes, testicular cancer spreads throughout the body. Signs include SUBSTANTIAL weight loss, back pain, CHEST pain, coughing, and enlargement of the lymph nodes on the neck. If you experience any of these symptoms, see your doctor for a physical examination and perhaps an ultrasound scan to look at internal tissue.
