Testicular cancer

Introduction

Introduction

Trauma, infections or radiation does not increase the incidence of testicular tumors

Testicular tumors are extremely chemo sensitive and respond excellently to treatment

Testicles are the male gonads (glands) which are responsible for secretion of the majority of androgenic hormones in men and sperm production.

Testicular cancer accounts for 1% of all cancer diagnoses in men. There are many types of testicular cancer and most develop from germ cells (germ cell tumors) or spermatocytes (testicular tumors).  This depends on the cell type from which the tumor develops.
