Fiction: There Aren't Any Symptoms of Testicular Cancer

A lump -- often painless -- on the testicles is the most common symptom of testicular cancer. “But there may be other more subtle symptoms,” says Sandra Adamson Fryhofer, M.D., chair of the American Medical Association Council on Science and Public Health. “Guys need to pay attention to any changes in the testicles, as many of these cancers are found by the young men themselves.” Other warning signs: Pain or swelling in either testicle, a feeling of heaviness in the scrotum, discomfort or a dull ache in the testicle or scrotum, and rarely, breast tenderness.
