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.
Providing rides to cancer treatment
For more than 50 years, the Canadian Cancer Society’s transportation program has enabled patients to focus their energy on fighting cancer and not on worrying about how they will get to treatment.
