Testicular cancer occurs when cells in the testicles become malignant. Testicles are located in the scrotum, which is a loose pouch of skin underneath the penis. The testicles produce sperm and hormones for male reproduction. This disease can be cured completely when diagnosed at an early stage. It is one of the rarest forms of cancer and the symptoms include a lump or enlargement in either testicles, a heavy feeling in the scrotum, accumulation of fluid in the scrotum etc. It can be diagnosed by an ultrasound and the forms of treatment include radiotherapy and chemotherapy.
