[MOL] Testicular cancer info......



 
You may not have heard much about testicular cancer, but if
you're a man between the ages of 15 and 35, you should know
that it's the most common form of cancer among men your age.
You should also know that testicular cancer can occur in men
any time after puberty--even into their 40s and 50s--and
that, if found early, it is highly treatable.

If testicular cancer is found in its early stages, more than
90 percent of cases can be cured. As with most types of
cancer, early detection is key. The best way to detect
testicular cancer early is to perform regular testicular
self-examination.

Some signs to look for are pain, swelling, or hardness in
the testicles, or some combination of these symptoms.
Sometimes, there will be a small, painless lump on a
testicle. There may also be a feeling of heaviness in the
scrotum, an ache in the lower abdomen or groin area, an
accumulation of blood or fluid in the scrotum, or a change in
the way a testicle feels. (Remember, though, that these
symptoms do not necessarily indicate cancer. There could be
other causes, such as an infection. If you have any of these
symptoms, speak to a doctor.)
