What is Testicular Cancer?

Cancerous cells of the testicular type can develop in either one or both testicles, which are glands located in the scrotum and responsible for producing sperm and male hormones such as testosterone. Testicular cancer is highly treatable when detected early. It is the most common cancer among people with testicles aged 15 to 35.
