There is more than one way to skin a cat. Or, in this case, educate men about testicular cancer.

Testicular cancer is most common among men 15-40. 7,000 – 8,000 cases are diagnosed each year.

Click here for info on examining your balls for testicular cancer.

Symptoms may include one or more of the following:

  • A lump in one testis or a hardening of one of the testicles
  • The testicle should normally feel smooth to the touch. Ridges may be felt because of enlarged blood vessels or tumor growth. Additionally the entire testicle may feel hard and bumpy to the touch.
  • Abnormal sensitivity (either numbness or pain)
  • Loss of sexual activity
  • Sexual withdrawal
  • Build-up of fluid in the scrotum
  • A dull ache in the lower abdomen or groin
  • An increase, or significant decrease, in the size of one testis
  • Blood in semen
  • General weak and tired feeling
  • The testicle with a tumor may be severely enlarged, as much as 3 times the original size.
  • Simultaneously the other testicle may be shrunken in size, due to the tumor taking up the majority of the blood supply to the scrotum.
