Testicular Cancer- what are the symptoms?
The main symptom of testicular cancer is a swelling or a lump on one of your testicles. There are a number of causes for swelling of the testicles but a solid feeling lump is more likely to be cancer. To be certain you are advised to see your GP if you find any adnormalities in your testicles
Swellings in the scrotum (the sack of skin surrounding the testicles) are quite common and most of these are not cancer, particularly if they are separate from the testicles themselves.
If your GP thinks it is necessary, he/she will arrange an urgent appointment with a specialist called a urologist for a second opinion.If you have any concerns or worries please feel free to contact our National Cancer Helpline on Freefone 1800 200 700 (Mon - Thurs 9 - 7, Fri 9 til 5 ) and speak with one of our nurses trained in cancer care.
