Men Confidential: 5 Signs of Testicular Cancer Men Tend to Hide
What is testicular cancer?
The testicles, also known as testes, are the male $ex glands in charge of producing male love hormones and sperm for the purposes of human reproduction.
When the cells surrounding the glands start to act and reproduce abnormally, the result may be the production of physical deformities, tumors and other symptoms that may be diagnosed as cancer.
Who is at risk?
While testicular cancer is rare in comparison with other cancer incidence, it happens to be more prevalent among males within the age range of 15 to 45 years of age, according to the Mayo Clinic.
Typical symptoms of testicular cancer
The first symptom that many males detect first is swelling, or a lump, in the testicular area or scrotum. This lump can be painless and only detectable through a manual examination.
