Testicular Cancer Symptoms

Symptoms of testicular cancer vary from man to man. Signs you may have testicular cancer include:

  • Small, hard lump that is often painless
  • Change in consistency of the testicles
  • Feeling of heaviness in the scrotum
  • Dull ache in the lower abdomen or the groin
  • Sudden collection of fluid in the scrotum
  • Pain or discomfort in a testicle or in the scrotum
  • Breast growth or loss of sexual desire
  • In boys, growth of facial and body hair at an abnormally young age
  • Lower back pain if cancer spreads

These symptoms do not always mean you have testicular cancer. However, it is important to discuss any symptoms with your doctor, since they may signal other health problems.
