Testicular Cancer

The testis is the organ of the male genitalia that is responsible for making sperm. It also contains several types of cells, all of which may develop cancer. It is analogous to the ovary in the female.

Testicular cancer is the most common cancer in men 15 to 34 years of age. As a result, we recommend that all men, starting at the age of puberty, perform self-exams of their testicles once a month. Testicular cancer generally presents as a new or growing mass on either testicle that is usually painless.

Recently Diagnosed with Testicular Cancer?
Here are some recommendations from UT Health urologist Dr. Samay Jain:

  1. Obtain your complete medical records, including all pathology/biopsy reports and tumor markers.
  2. Get copies of your imaging studies (CT, MRI, etc.) and radiologist's interpretations.
  3. Place this information in a three-ring binder and take it with you to your medical appointments.
  4. Put blank paper in your binder for notes.
  5. Write down questions you have for your doctor and make sure he or she takes the time to answer them.
  6. Take loved ones to your appointments. Remember, they are your advocates. As the patient, it can be difficult to follow what your physician is telling you, especially in the face of cancer. Loved ones may hear things differently, and may be able to give you a more objective assessment of options. Plus, they are available for support and to ask questions that may not occur to you.
