Testicular cancers mostly occur in males with testes between 20-35 years of age. Then there is another peak of testicular cancer in males who are age 60 and older.
Only about 10,000 cases diagnosed in the United States every year. But the number of cases seems to be increasing every year. Testicular cancer incidence increased by 100% from 1990 to 2000.
The incidence varies by ethnicity, as well with White males presenting the most cases of testicular cancer. To date, there is no research to suggest, one way or another, if Gay, Bisexual or Transgender people present more or less than the general population. We encourage monthly self screening for testicular cancer, and have found what we feel is the best video to show you how to do a home test. Please click on the video to the right.
