Painles: Initial stages of testicular tumor appear as pain less growth with no testicular sensation then spreads to abdominal nodes , and a reason for delayed diagnosis. For any swelling in the scrotum must see the physician for early diagnosis and cure.

It varies: Testicular cancer often presents as a painless mass, but this is definitely not a rule, and it may be painful. Any lump (mass) of the testicle should be brought to a physician's attention asap.

Usually no symptoms: Most often noted as a mass which is not symptomatic. Test would be a physical exam not a lab test. You and/or your doctor can examine your testicles.
