Nut facts

There is no single cause of testicular cancer but some factors seem to increase a guys risk, such as:

  • delayed descent of the testicles (if not corrected early)
  • age – particularly between 15 and 49
  • family or personal history of testicular cancer
  • abnormal development of the testicle

Some guys develop testicular cancer without having any of these risk factors. The best way to protect yourself is to check your boys on a regular basis.
