Testicular Cancer is the #1 form of cancer in men age 15-35. Testicular cancer, or cancer of the testis, occurs when cancer cells form in one or both testicles. These cells begin to change and grow uncontrollably, forming a mass or tumor. The cells can also invade the blood stream and lymph system and spread, leading to tumors in other areas of the body called metastases.
Most often testicular cancer is detected as a painless lump in one of the testicles. Testicular cancer is highly treatable and one of the most curable forms of cancer. It is especially important to detect testicular cancer in the earliest stages where the cure rate is almost 100%. That is why self-exams, starting in the adolescent years, are key in early detection of testicular cancer.
This seminar will cover the following questions:
·         What is Testicular Cancer?
·         What are the signs and symptoms?
·         What are the risk factors?
·         How do I do a self-exam?
·         I have cause for concern. What do I do now?
·         How will this affect me long term?
