Testicular cancer

Testicular cancer is the most commonly-found tumour in men aged between 15 and 35.  More than 90% of testicular cancers develop in the germ cells, which are responsible for producing sperm. 

Secondary testicular tumours are caused by cancer cells that spread to the testicles from other parts of the body (metastasis). These cancers are much less common than the other forms of testicular cancer mentioned above.

While these tumours originate in the testicles, they may also occasionally appear in the abdomen, chest or other parts of the body, either as a primary tumour or as distant involvement of a primary tumour in the testicle.
