Testicular Cancer

What is Testicular Cancer?


Although still rare compared to other cancers, testicular cancer is the most common cancer in men aged between 15-45 years with around 2200-2300 men being diagnosed each year. It is more common in Caucasian males.

If found at an early stage a cure rate of  98% is usually possible and even when testicular cancer has spread to other areas of the body cure can still be achieved. In fact according to recent research overall 96% of men diagnosed with any stage testicular cancer will be alive 10 years after treatment.
