Testicular cancer is one of the most common cancers among men between 15 and 34 years old. According to Globocan statistics in Colombia, every two men per 1,000 inhabitants present this symptomatology.


As in all cases of cancer, it is important that people perform a weekly or daily self-examination, and evaluate if there has been any change and if they feel any non-painful lump or mass, if it occurs, go to a trusted doctor or EPS to begin a professional diagnosis. and treatment.


Fortunately, testicular cancer, when discovered early, can be cured and in 95% of cases death does not occur, it is necessary to perform a testicular self-examination. The appropriate treatment at the time of early diagnosis if you go for surgery is the combination of chemotherapy with radiotherapy on some occasions and strict follow-up with therapies.


Unfortunately, when the time after finding the cancer is not discovered in time, the average life span is 5 years. Some risk factors for having testicular cancer are::

  1. Undescended testicle or cryptorchidism.

  2. Gonadal dysgenesis or abnormal testicular development.

  3. Insensitivity syndrome.

  4. History of first-degree relatives, father or brothers, with testicular tumors.

  5. Infertility.

  6. Exposure to diethylstilbestrol, a synthetic estrogen to treat prostate problems.

The Colombian League Against Cancer launches a creative preventive campaign that seeks to promote the early detection of testicular cancer.
