Info: Disordered cell growth in the male reproductive organ. Most common form of cancer in young men (20s - 30s). Testicular self exam is the best way to detect it early, which leads to nearly 100% survival.

Testicular cancer: Testicular cancer is a range of diseases consisting of germ cell tumors (develop into sperm) and non-germ cell tumors (the cells support germ cells). They are most common in the early 20s to mid-30s and are usually discovered as a painless lump in the testis (just one side). Any new lump in the testicle should be evaulated by a doctor. Seminoma, most common, is quite curable.
