Radiology
In brief: Ultrasound
Scrotal ultrasound is a fast and radiation free method of looking at the scrotum/testicles.
It is often used when physical exam is suspicious.

Pathology
In brief: Scrotal exam.
Scrotal self exam is probably the best test you can do at home.
This can find a painless mass, which is the most common way this tumor presents. Exam with a light to shine through the mass can determine if it is a hydrocele, or water collected in the scrotum. Otherwise your doctor can order an alphafetoprotein (afp), beta human Chorionic Gonadotropin (b-hcg), chest xray, and abd.+pelv. Ct scan.
