What is Testicular Cancer

Testicular cancer is among the less common types of cancer and typically affects males of younger age. The vast majority of patients are between the ages of 15 and 49. A small number of patients belong to older age groups. The testes are a part of the male genitalia, either side of the penis. They produce sperm for reproduction and important male hormones. There are several different types of testicular cancer, each dependent on where the cancer originated.

One of the most important things men can do to help prevent cancer from going undiagnosed for longer is getting to know their bodies. If they then notice any changes in their testes or scrotum they can see their GP and get diagnosed quickly, with more chance of catching the cancer at earlier stages.

Radiotherapy

You may be given radiotherapy to reduce the risk of breast cancer coming back in the breast, chest or lymph nodes.

Radiotherapy uses high-energy x-rays to destroy cancer cells. Normal cells can also be damaged by radiotherapy, which may cause side effects. But careful planning and newer ways of giving radiotherapy have reduced the risk of damage to healthy tissue and nearby organs. Cancer cells cannot repair themselves after radiotherapy, but normal cells usually can.
