What are the symptoms of testicular cancer?

The following are the most common symptoms for testicular cancer; however, each individual may experience symptoms differently. The National Cancer Institute suggests that a man see a physician if any of the following symptoms lasts two weeks or longer:

  • Lump in either testicle.
  • Enlargement of a testicle. 
  • Feeling of heaviness in the scrotum. 
  • Dull ache in the lower abdomen or in the groin. 
  • Sudden collection of fluid in the scrotum. 
  • Pain or discomfort in a testicle or in the scrotum. 
  • Enlargement or tenderness of the breasts.

The symptoms of testicular cancer may resemble other conditions or medical problems. Always consult your physician for a diagnosis.
