exact cause of testicular cancer is not well known, but several factors are suspected in the development of the
disease. Most common factors that may increase your chance of having testicular cancer include:
- Age - testicular cancer is more common among men aged 15
to 34 years old, and is very rare before age 15 and after age 50.
- Race - Testicular cancer is more common among white men
than those of African origin.
- HIV/Aids – risk of testicular cancer is higher among victims
- Family history
your family members have a history of testicular cancer, you have an increased risk of having it.
atrophy - a
decrease in the testes volume, especially after mumps or after a trauma, appears to increase the risk of
testicular cancer significantly.
or undescended testicle - an
undescended testicle (one or both
testicles fail to move
into the scrotum before birth) in childhood
is considered as the greatest risk factor of testicular cancer.
