Each year in the UK, around 2,200 men are diagnosed with testicular cancer. It is more common in white men and in younger to middle-aged men.

There are two main types of testicular cancer – seminomas and non-seminomas.

·         Seminoma

These usually occur in men between 25–55 years of age. About 40–45 in 100 (40–45%) of men with testicular cancer have a seminoma.

·         Non-seminoma

Non-seminomas usually affect younger men aged between 15–35 years old. They occur in about 40–45 in 100 (40–45%) of men with testicular cancer.

The most common symptom is a lump in a testicle, but there may also be other symptoms.

Symptoms can include:

  • swelling or a lump in a testicle, which is usually painless – occasionally the swelling may suddenly increase in size and become painful
  • a dull ache or pain, or heaviness in the scrotum.
