Testicular Cancer

What is testicular cancer?

Testicular cancer occurs in the testicular tissue and is a malignant tumor formed by cancerous transformation of testicular cells.Testicular cancers are classified into two main groups: spermatogonial cell carcinoma and non-spermatogonial cell carcinoma. Testicular cancer is a rare malignant tumor in men and is the 18th most common male cancer in Malaysia. According to the Malaysian National Cancer Registry Report (2012-2016), testicular cancer accounts for 1.2% of male cancers in Malaysia.

So can middle and late-staged testicular cancer be cured? Minimally invasive techniques with few side effects and minimal trauma can help testicular cancer patients avoid surgical resection and suffering from traditional radiotherapy, improve their quality of life and effectively prolong their survival.

Testicular Cancer Symptoms

Testicular cancer occurs in the testicular tissue and its pathological source is complex, but it is relatively rare in clinic, accounting for about 1% of all male malignancies. Testicular cancer is mainly common in the young men aged 15 to 39, while the curative rate of testicular cancer is relatively high.

Early detection and positive treatment is the key. Therefore, young men should enhance awareness of disease prevention. Once found the following special signs, you should promptly go to regular hospital for check.

What are the Symptoms of Testicular Cancer?

1. Enlargement of Testicle: This results from the interminably growth of tumor cells. The shape of enlargement is not uniform, sometimes very irregular, while the testicle growing with tumor will be markedly enlarged.

2. Hardened testicle: testicle is as hard as stone by touching, which is very different from general testicular inflammation that is uniformly swelling and soft by touching. Although testicle is very hard, but there is no pain when touched, which is also a difference between testicular inflammations.

3. Heavy sense of testicle: since testicular tumor is formed by the growth of numerous tumor cells, so it is a solid mass. With growing, the weight of testicle will increase, thus the patient will have a sense of falling and even it will affect walking. Lift the testicle with hand and a sense of holding a stone can be felt.

4. Transillumination test negative: Generally when hydrocele appears transparency of scrotum and testicle will increase, thus transmittance test will be positive. While testicular tumors grow densely and solidly, no liquid at all, so the transillumination test will be negative.

Experts from St. Stamford Modern Cancer Hopsital Guangzhou remind you: When the above symptoms occur to you, you should go to check and get treatment immediately, so as not to delay the condition.

Testicular Cancer Diagnosis
Testicular cancer is seriously threaten to men's health, the harm of which is mainly embodied in male's infertility. The key of testicular cancer treatment is to live up to early detection and early treatment. Early treatment has a certain good effect on the rehabilitation of patients while it will become very difficult to be treated once the cancer develop into advanced stage. Understanding the diagnostic methods of testicular cancer will contribute to the treatment to a great extent.

What are the diagnoses of testicular cancer?
1、Laboratory diagnoses: Laboratory diagnoses mainly contain the test of β -HCG, AFP and LDH serum, and these serum tumor markers have important significance to the treatment, follow-up and prognosis of testicular cancer.
2、Imaging diagnosis: As the most preferred diagnostic method clinically, type B ultrasound can help to identify the mass in the scrotum. Abdominal and pelvic CT is applied to confirm lymph node metastasis, while chest radiograph and CT is used to judge lung metastasis. Therefore, abdominal and pelvic CT is an important basis for the staging of testicular cancer patients. In the follow-ups of testicular cancer patients, positron emission tomography ( PET ) has a very high sensitivity and specificity on the evaluation of residual cancer cells.
3、Pathologic diagnosis: Biopsy may be a definitive diagnosis to testicular tumor, but there is certain risk of implanted metastasis. Thus, scrotal testis puncture biopsy should be applied with caution.
In addition, differential diagnosis is also one of testicular cancer diagnoses which includes the diagnosis of testicular epidermoid or dermoid cyst, testicular torsion, epididymitis, epididymo orchitis, and hydrocele.

Experts from St. Stamford Modern Cancer Hopsital Guangzhou remind that if one is diagnosed with testicular cancer after related examinations, he should go to regular hospitals for treatment promptly.
