Is testicular cancer always in the scrotum, or can it show up as lumps in the skin?

Metastasis

Testicular cancer can metastasize to many organs, including skin. Is there a particular reason you are concerned that these lumps are testicular cancer, in particular?

Dr. Simon Kimm answered:

Can you please describe the diffrence in testicular cancer and epidermal cysts lumps?

Pathology & location

Epididymis
Testicular cancer occurs when germ cells inside the testis become malignant and grow to form a mass. Epididymal cysts, are outside the testis in the epididymis, and are benign fluid filled bumps. It can sometimes be difficult to tell by self exam, so an exam by an physician is important. Based on this exam, a scrotal ultrasound may be ordered, which will help make the diagnosis.

I was wondering what are the differences in testicular cancer and epidermal cysts lumps?

Malignant vs benign

Stomach_cancer
Epidermal cysts are benign and can be left alone. Testicular cancer can kill if not treated and is one of the cancers for which available treatments are effective. See this site for info on testicular cancer. http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/testicular-cancer/basics/definition/CON-20043068

Dr. Amy Levine answered:

When checking for testicular cancer, is it still a concern when there are lumps on the "tubes" leading from testicle to the body?

Maybe

Testicular_cancer
It's hard to say without doing an exam. You may be just noticing normal structures, but varicose veins can frequently occur in this region (varicocoeles). This may also need an ultrasound if your doctor thinks it's needed. BTW, kudos on doing self exams!

Lumps on both testicles for almost 30 yrs. Could this still be testicular cancer and still be alive? Dumb guy going for first physical in over 20 yrs.

Not to worry

The lumps that you feel are probably part of your normal anatomy. 30 years is long enough to be confident that they are benign. It is great that you are paying attention to your health.

Is lump on a testicle, testicular cancer?

Lumpy testicles

Testicular_cancer
No. If you are 23 then is is most likely something else. Testicular cancer hits men between ages 26 and 32. If you truly have a lump on the testicle (rare) and not on the various tubes and blood vessels in the scrotum then you need to see your physician who very well may order an ultra sound to determine what this is.

How fast can the lump grow from testicular cancer?

Depends

There many types of testicular cancers. The growth rate will depend on the type of tumor and how aggressive it is. Sometimes difficult to predict.
