Testicular Cancer Symptoms

As testicular cancer is curable when detected early, experts recommend regular monthly testicular self-examination after a hot shower when the scrotum is looser.

Men should examine each testicle first feeling for lumps then, compare them together to see if one is bigger than the other.Possible signs of testicular cancer include swelling or discomfort in the scrotum.

These and other symptoms may be caused by testicular cancer. Other conditions may cause the same symptoms. A doctor should be consulted if any of the following problems occur:

  • A painless lump or swelling in either testicle.

  • A change in how the testicle feels.

  • A dull ache in the lower abdomen or the groin.

  • A sudden build-up of fluid in the scrotum.

  • Pain or discomfort in a testicle or in the scrotum.

  • Blood in sperm or ejaculate.

    Men should report any of these to a doctor as soon as possible.
