Dr. Andrew Turrisi answered:

I have testicular cancer, and am schedule for surgery later this week. Is it a mild cancer?

Mild is a term

Cancer
used by weathermen and tobacco sales ads frmthe 50's. It is a curable cancer. Sometimes with surgery alone, others require chemotherapy or a chemotehrpay option instead of surveillance imaging for protracted times. It is perhaps a "dumb" cancer, in that it can be completely cured with chemotherapy even with far-advanced disease. I'm sorry you have to have it, & you worry, but cure likely!

Thinned hair

post chemo can be permanent. I would consult a dermatologist. Try Rogain (minoxidil). Risk the hair-treatment cost folks. I am pleased and congratulate you on your 6 year survival. Male pattern baldness can be related to familial traits but also testosterone. There is no cancer recurrence risk in pursing these issues.

Dr. Peter Sadow answered:

 What is testicular cancer?

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.

what causes testicular cancer?

Abnormal cells

Testicular_cancer
Abnormal cells in testis multiply and become tumors. They are relatively uncommon tumors. but all men should prectice scrotal self examination on a regular basis (Say x1/month), ideally in the shower. Seek medical help if you feel a hard lump, or one testicle starts to grow much larger than ihe other one. Intraabdominal undescended testes are at cancer risk even after correction. Prognosis is good
