Does Getting Hit In The Testicles Lead To Cancer
Painless mass.: Testicular cancer usually presents as a painless mass in the scrotum. Because there is often no pain, many unfortunately delay evaluation. As the mass enlarges, there may be discomfort or a sensation of fullness in the scrotum, seen in 30-40%. 10% experience acute pain. If the cancer spreads, symptoms of more advanced disease such as neck mass, back pain, bone pain, or cough may result.See 3 more doctor answers
Cancer is a group of diseases that is characterized by uncontrolled cell growth leading to invasion of surrounding tissues that spread to other parts of the body. Cancer can begin anywhere in the body and is usually related to one or more genetic mutations that allow normal cells to become malignant by interfering with internal cellular control mechanisms, such as programmed cell death or by preventing ...Read more
No: "mountain oysters" are fairly popular in some parts of the usa. Cancer isn't an infection and even if a live animal cancer cell were injected into your bloodstream, your body would just reject it.
If I had to get my testicles removed because of cancer. Is there any way for me to still have kids?
With banked sperm.: Sperm banking is an important part of any discussion for those undergoing treatment for testicular cancer. Most cancers involve one testicle only, but those with testicular cancer appear to have abnormalities with their sperm in the unaffected testis. Removal of both testicles, chemotherapy, or retroperitoneal surgery for more advanced testis cancer can render the patient infertile.See 1 more doctor answer
If you only have one testicle remaining does that make you less likely to get testicular cancer than if you had both?
Yes: Each testicle's risk of developing cancer is independent of the other so you're 50% less likely compared to having both although this assumes that you didn't lose 1st one to cancer.
Can all Abnormal Lumps On the testicle mean cancer? . Can A 15 year old cancer? Nd how did it get there in the first place witout injuring myself?
Get seen now: If it's a new mass in your scrotum and you don't know what it is, get with your physician without delay. Don't try to second-guess odds.
No.: Testicular cancer almost always presents as a lump in the testicle itself, not in the tube-like structures attached to it.
If Azoospermic men are more likely to get cancer then are people who lost both testicles at same risk? Please explain.
2.2% risk of cancer: The Stanford study which found increased cancer risk in azoospermic men did not evaluate men who were castrated (is that which you mean by "lost both testicles"?) Of course a man who has no testicles, can not get testicular cancer (unless they were removed FOR testicular cancer). Castrated men have a lower risk of prostate cancer due to lack of testosterone.See 1 more doctor answer
I'm a 34 year old male. Just lost my second testicle to testicular cancer. Now have no testicles. Will I be able to lead a normal life?
"Normal" really does: Not exist. We are all different and respecting and celebrating those differences give life and bring peace. Of course you will mourn the physical loss you have experienced but you can be perfectly happy as you adjust. A clinical psychologist can help smooth out the adjustment process a bit. Sorry for what you have been through. Peace and good health.
I have an lump on right testicle and I get red ruches on the right side of the scrotum. This makes me think a got penile cancer.
Rash/ mass: Unlikely penile ca; need to get check by urologist for testes lump.
Get it checked: Any hard growth on a testicle is considered cancer until proven otherwise. Scotal ultrasound can usually provide the answer. Good luck.
A mass: Usually it is not painful. Any mass in the testis that you weren't aware of previously needs to be seen by your physician. Late in its course, like any cancer it can do anything. Best wishes.
Possibly: There are other causes, but "stoney hard" is very worrisome. You need to have an ultrasound exam done. Testicular cancer is not impossible so get it done right away as it is a very treatable and often curable form of cancer.
Varies: Some men who start checking discover their epididymis or appendix of the testis and mistake it for a possible cancer -- it's good they're checking. The percentage of testicular solid masses not related to trauma that are malignant is quite high, and for each individual mass, it's either 0% or 100%. Best have any new mass examined.
No: Some couples like this. This actually causes the prostate and seminal vesicles to fill tremendously, giving some men more enjoyment when ejaculation finally takes place. The testes are unaffected. No one's shown any clearly increased risk in prostate cancer from abstinence, though the jury's still out on it being a risk for benign enlargement later. Seminal vesicle cancer almost never happens.
Possibly: You should see a urologist soonGet a more detailed answer ›
The testicles are the two oval male gonads, or reproductive glands, located in the scrotum. The seminiferous tubules of the testis are the site of spermatogenesis and its leydig cells secrete testosterone. The term testicles is synonymous with testes or gonads. The singular form is ...Read more
