US very good test: Yes, testicular cancer is very easily diagnosed by scrotal ultrasound. Cancer growth looks completely different (usually a spherical mass) to normal testicular tissue, which is homogenous (i.e. tissue is of identical consistency throughout). U need this examination if U have a hard lump in or next to a testicle. Good Luck
