→Young men are most at risk — most cases occur in men 15 to 39. Only 9 percent of men with testicular cancer are older than 50.
→White men are at the greatest risk of getting testicular cancer. They are 5 to 10 times more likely to get it than African-American men. Asian-American, Latino, and Native American men also have higher rates than African-American men — but they have lower rates than white men.
Other factors increase the risk:
Cryptorchidism — having a testicle that did not descend into the scrotum
A family history of testicular cancer
HIV
Klinefelter’s syndrome — a genetic condition that causes underdeveloped testicles and other problems
Having previously had testicular cancer

It’s a type of cancer that occurs in men’s testicles. The rate of testicular cancer has been increasing — experts have not been able to find reasons for the increase. About 8,000 men are diagnosed with testicular cancer each year in the U.S.

Early diagnosis can save your life. Even though testicular cancer is not very common, it is a serious concern for young men. It is the most common cancer among men aged 20 to 34. But if testicular cancer is found and treated early, it is usually curable.
