Testicular Cancer Awareness Month

Released: 4/18/2022 6:00:00 AM

April is Testicular Cancer Awareness Month. Testicular cancer is the leading cause of cancer in men ages 15-44 with the average age of detection being 33 years old. The American Cancer Society estimates that 8,430 new cases are diagnosed each year. Testicular cancer is considered highly treatable, especially if caught early, and monthly self-exams and early detection are key.

Potential signs and symptoms of testicular cancer include a lump or swollen testicle(s), loss of sex drive, back pain, breast growth or tenderness, pre-puberty growth of hair on face and body, aches in the belly or testicles.
