The most common signs of testicular cancer are pain, swelling, or a lump or hardness in the testicles. If you find a lump in a testicle, please see a doctor immediately.
Less common symptoms include:
- lower abdomen or groin pain
- tenderness in the breast area
- a painless lump in the testicle
- heaviness in the scrotum
- back pain
While these symptoms don’t necessarily mean cancer is present, see a doctor if you experience any of them — early detection greatly increases your chance of successful treatment.
