Testicular Cancer

In the US, the incidence rate of testicular cancer has been increasing for several decades without evidence pointing to any particular lead as to why. Still, testicular cancer is not common: about 1 in every 263 males will develop it. It can also usually be treated successfully, and a man’s risk of dying from the disease is very low.

This doesn’t mean that one shouldn’t acquaint themselves with the possible risk factors and signs and symptoms of testicular cancer. Help spread the word!
