Testicular Cancer Awareness Month

1 April 30 April

What is testicular cancer?

Testicular cancer is when normal cells in the testicles change and grow into cancer.  The cancer can affect how the testicles work normally. Sometimes testicular cancer cells spread to lymph glands at the back of the abdomen, the chest or neck. 

Testicular cancer is rare, but it’s the most common cancer in young men aged between 15 and 34. About 170 men are diagnosed with testicular cancer every year in Ireland.
