Testicular cancer can strike men at any age, but is more common in young
men. The good news is that it is generally rare and usually treated successfully.
As with all cancers, however, early detection is the best advantage you
and your doctor can have. The urologists at Alaska Medical Specialties
are experts in men’s health and we have reliable testing methods
and treatment options for testicular cancer.
The most common symptoms of testicular cancer can usually be detected by
the patient or his spouse in an at-home examination. If you can feel a
new lump on or swelling of one or both testicles or in the scrotum area,
contact us for a diagnostic exam. Symptoms could also include “heaviness”
in the scrotum or dull ache in the abdomen or groin area.
Surgery, radiation and chemotherapy are all treatments used to defeat testicular
cancer. The urologists of Alaska Medical Specialties are the most experienced
and accredited men’s health doctors in the state.
