Testicular Cancer - Cancer Treatment VA
April recognizes Testicular Cancer
Testicular cancer forms in the testicles. Almost all testicular cancers start in the germ cells. The two main types of testicular germ cell tumors are seminomas and non-seminomas. Non-seminomas tend to grow and spread more quickly than seminomas, which are more sensitive to radiation. Health history, including having had an undescended testicle, can affect a man’s risk of testicular cancer. Our integrative approach to cancer treatment VA, has proven to help many with testicular and prostate cancers.
Risk Factors & Facts
The risk factors for testicular cancer include; but are not limited to the following:
-Having had abnormal development of the testicles.
-Having a family history of testicular cancer (especially in a father or brother).
Testicular cancer most often develops in young and middle-aged men and is the most common form of cancer in 20 to 35 year old men. It is a highly treatable and often curable form of cancer according to the National Cancer Institute. The National Cancer Institute's Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) Program estimated that in 2016, 8,720 men in the United States were diagnosed with testicular and some 380 died of the disease. Testicular cancer remains one of the most treatable cancer types, with over 95 percent of those diagnosed surviving.
