About Testicular Cancer

Testicular cancer is the most common type of cancer in men ages 15-35 years, but men of all ages can be at risk.

Testicular cancer is of special concern to young men. It’s less common in middle-aged and older men. Caucasian men are about 5 times more likely to develop testicular cancer than African American men. The rate among Hispanic men lies between those of African Americans and Caucasians.

In the U.S., over 9,400 cases are diagnosed each year, and about 440 males die of testicular cancer. According to the American Cancer Society, the average age of diagnosis is about age 33.

Most testicular cancer awareness organizations recommend that males conduct regular self-exams. Instructions for self-exams can be found here.

You can learn more about testicular cancer at the Men’s Health Resource Center.

You can download free brochures in English and Spanish at the Men’s Health Library.
