8 Signs Revealing You Have Testicular Cancer

Testicular lump

It is not always the case, but patients with testicular cancer may start detecting a lump in their testicles. This is often a firm lump and may even feel different from the rest of the testicle. However, keep in mind that there are many other possible diagnoses for a testicular lump, and there are many types of benign cysts and vascular conditions that would make your testicles feel different.

If you want to check yourself, the best way to feel for lumps is doing so after a shower when you’re relaxed. Do it one testicle at a time feeling the testicles and the structures surrounding it. If you feel a testicular lump, do not be afraid. Most of them are benign. However, that should not stop you from looking for medical advice, especially if you feel more than one symptom described in this article.

In most cases, an ultrasound is more than enough to rule out testicular cancer. It will give your clinicians enough data about the localization, the composition, and the nature of your testicular lump.
