Patient Comments: Testicular Cancer - Symptoms

What were the symptoms and signs associated with testicular cancer in you or your partner?

Comment from: Wynbar, 55-64 Male (Patient) Published: January 06

I had testicular cancer in 1993 and 1999. First time there were no tumors in either testicle. I was told cancer cell had formed in testicle and travelled to abdomen forming tumor. The only symptom was severe stomach pain occasionally. Chemotherapy was successful but I developed tumor in testicle in 1999. Testicle was removed and I had more chemotherapy.

I am a 36 year survivor of testicular cancer. I had one removed, and had another lymph node removal surgery. Five months of rough chemotherapy. I ended up sterile, but still could have an erection. Best thing about it, no problems since and I am alive!

I had testicular cancer when I was 26. I had one testicle removed, and I went through chemo had surgery to remove all the dead lymph nodes from my stomach area. I went through chemo and both of my kidneys went bad, so I did dialysis for 6 years and ended up with a kidney transplant.
