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.
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-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.
