Testicular cancer - A to Z
This page links to content about testicular cancer.
Around 2,100 men are diagnosed with testicular cancer every year in the UK, and rates are rising. But treatment for testicular cancer is very effective and nearly all men are cured of the disease.
Testicular cancer is more common in younger and middle-aged men than it is in older men. One risk factor for testicular cancer is having undescended testicle, when one or both testicles have not moved down into the scrotum. If this is not corrected in childhood then the risk of testicular cancer is increased.
