Testicular cancer is the 16th most common cancer among males in the UK (2013), accounting for 1% of all new cases of cancer in males.[1-4]
In 2013, there were 2,296 new cases of testicular cancer in the UK.[1-4] The

ASR calculated with ESP2013. Not comparable with ASRs calculated with ESP1976.
Testicular cancer incidence rates throughout the UK vary significantly between cancer networks, with the highest rates in the south west, northern England, and areas of Scotland and Wales, and the lowest rates in London and eastern England.[5,6] This may reflect demographic (e.g. ethnicity) variation between regions.
