In brief: In majority of cases

testicular cancer can be detected by clinical examination , ultra sound is an additional help .
Yes it s possible in minority of cases , will present with abdominal metastasis , primary is detected after orchiectomy small focus histologically seen in the specimen .

In brief: US very good test

Yes, testicular cancer is very easily diagnosed by scrotal ultrasound.
Cancer growth looks completely different (usually a spherical mass) to normal testicular tissue, which is homogenous (i.e. tissue is of identical consistency throughout). U need this examination if U have a hard lump in or next to a testicle. Good Luck
