What does testicular cancer mean?

ANSWER

Testicular cancer is a malignant tumor in a testicle. The testicles are oval-shaped sex glands in a sac of skin called the scrotum. The scrotum is located behind the penis.

This type of cancer, although relatively rare, mostly affects men between the ages of 15 and 35 (although it can affect males at any age).
