When to Seek Medical Care for Testicular Cancer
The symptoms of testicular cancer can also have many other causes that have nothing to do with cancer. If men have any of these symptoms, it is best to be examined in a timely manner to rule out cancer and receive treatment for whatever condition they may have.
If men notice any of these symptoms or any abnormality or change in their testicles, they should visit a medical professional immediately, preferably a physician who specializes in diseases of the genitals and urinary tract (urologist).
Any severe testicular pain or injury warrants a visit to a hospital emergency department. A change in the appearance or an examination of the testicle should prompt a visit to your health-care provider.
If a male does not have a regular health-care provider, he should ask family members and friends for a referral. If that doesn't work, services listed below are available to help him find a urologist.
