In brief: Testicular mass

Testicular cancer is most commonly diagnosed due to painless mass in the testicle.
Testicular tumors can grow quite rapidly (with a doubling time of approximately 36 hours), so it is imperative that you see your physician urgently if you do feel mass in one (or both) of your testicles. He/she will be able to order the appropriate tests and get you in to a urologist for treatment.

In brief: Testicular exam

Usually by the owner, noting change in size or shape.
Early seems better always; however, in testis, even delay does not compromise chance at cure.
