HealthWise at Five-Testicular Cancer Awareness Month

Testicular cancer can develop in one or both testicles. Most tumors have the ability to spread to other organs, such as the lymph system, lungs and brain, leading to serious illness or death.

Testicular cancer is rare, accounting for about 1% of all male cancers. However, testicular cancer is the most common form of cancer in men ages 15-35.

Testicular cancer is one of the most treatable cancers, especially if caught early.

During HealthWise at Five, Urologist Dr. Allan Haynes and a survivor Jason Morton share the importance of testicular screening.
