Testicular cancer is one of the most common cancers in men between the ages of 15 and 34. Symptoms of testicular cancer vary but can include scrotal nodules or swelling and a sensation of fullness or heaviness of the scrotum, which may be interpreted as pain. Four treatment options are available for testicular cancer: surgery to remove the cancer, radiation therapy, chemotherapy and bone marrow transplantation. No matter what a patient's treatment course, follow-up studies and office visits are imperative.
