Risk factors for testicular cancer are as follows:
AGE: Young men have a higher risk of testicular cancer. In men, testicular cancer is the most common cancer between the ages of 20 to 34, the second most common cancer between the ages of 35 to 39, and the third most common cancer between the ages of 15 to 19.
FAMILY HISTORY: Men with a family history of testicular cancer may have an increased risk of developing testicular cancer.
HEREDITARY CONDITIONS: Men born with gonadal dysgenesis or Klinefelter’s syndrome have a greater risk of developing testicular cancer.
PERSONAL HISTORY: Men with undescended testicles have a higher-than-average risk of developing testicular cancer. Men who have already had testicular cancer have a higher risk of developing a tumour in the other testicle.
RACE: Testicular cancer is more common among white men than black men. Hispanic, American Indian, and Asian men develop testicular cancer at a higher rate than black men, but less than white men.
We offer a testicular ultrasound scan and examination to screen for testicular cancer.

An ultrasound examination is a painless medical examination which uses soundwaves to “see” inside the body. No radiation is used in ultrasound. A transducer (which is like a small microphone) is placed over the area of the body being examined. Soundwaves pass through the skin from the transducer and echoes are reflected back to it. Those echoes are converted into electrical signals which can then be viewed as images on a television screen.
