Testicular cancer is a rare type of cancer and we usually see it in male patients between the ages of 15 to 30. But the great thing about it is that it is highly treatable. And if detected early, the chances of being cancer free is higher. Like breast exams, regular self-examinations are very crucial to early detection and receiving early treatment.
Testicular cancer usually manifests itself as a lump or an enlargement in one of the testicles. Patients with testicular cancer will usually feel heaviness in the scrotum area and pain or discomfort in the abdomen. We also recommend that patients come in for screening when they notice that fluid has collected in the scrotum, when they feel any unusual pain in the scrotum or the testicles, and when they feel any enlargement or tenderness in their breasts.
If any of these symptoms lasts more than 2 weeks, it is important that you come in for a testicular cancer screening so that you may receive treatment the soonest time possible once it is confirmed. After performing an ultrasound and several blood tests an expert from the Collin County Urology can tell you if you have testicular cancer and will right away recommend a treatment plan for you to help you battle the big C.
