Call your doctor as soon as possible if you have any symptoms of testicular cancer, including:
A swelling or lump in one or both of the testes. You may or may not have pain in the testicles or scrotum.
A heavy feeling in the scrotum.
A dull pain or feeling of pressure in the lower belly or groin.
Some early-stage testicular cancers are successfully managed with a "wait-and-see" approach after surgery. This option involves frequent exams as well as blood tests and imaging tests to watch your condition. Surveillance may let you avoid the side effects from other follow-up treatments, such as chemotherapy and radiation therapy.
