Testis cancer causes?

If you have a cryptorchid testis and it's not been fixed when it should have been, the risk is much higher. White guys are at the greatest risk, no one knows why. ...Read more

Had testicular cancer in left testicular. & testicular removed. Yesterday diagnosed hydrocele in right testicular. Will it become a testicular cancer?

Different entities: I'm glad the original testicular cancer is history. If you've had a good imaging study and there's no testicular cancer on the right, i would not worry about the hydrocele -- these are extremely common.

The term means: "new blood vessels". Not sure if this is read from an u/s report, but to answer you question, only a biopsy provides the critical tissue to determine if cancer or not, and if cancer what kind.

If you have > 30' curvature or pain with erection, see your urologist ASAP. ...Read more
