Testicular Cancer Symptoms: Stay Healthy By Catching Testicular Cancer Symptoms Early

If you are concerned that you are experiencing testicular cancer symptoms, it is absolutely imperative that you make an appointment with your doctor to get them checked out as soon as possible. While testicular cancer isn't the deadliest of cancers, it is still very important to catch it in the earliest stage possible. The longer testicular cancer has to grow and spread, the less likely you are to survive in the end. Of course, this is true of all cancers but with testicular cancer a man has a lot to lose. Canadian comedian Tom Green made a documentary about his experience with testicular cancer, which culminated in having one of his testis completely removed.

Fortunately, if caught in stage 1, the survival rate for those affected is as high as 95 percent. While the odds may be in your favor, it's still nothing to fool around with. Here are some of the testicular cancer symptoms to be aware of: significant increase or decrease in the size of one of the testis, constant and recurring dull pain in the lower abdomen or groin area and blood in the semen. Testicular cancer is most commonly found in Caucasian men who fall in the 15-40 age bracket, although there are also peaks during infancy and around the age of 60. Common treatments for testicular cancer are chemotherapy or radiation treatments.

Other testicular cancer symptoms to be on the lookout for are loss of sexual appetite, buildup of fluid in the scrotum and pain or tenderness in the testicles. To be sure, testicular cancer isn't something that is on the tip of most people's tongue. Still, it is something that people need to be aware of. Nobody is immune from it, as champion Lance Armstrong proved when he almost died as a result of the condition.
