Doctor's Notes on Peyronie's Disease
(Curvature of the Penis)

Testicular cancer in children is a disease in which malignant (cancer) cells form in the tissues of one or both testicles; there are two types - germ cell tumors (start in sperm cells) and non-germ cell tumors (start in the tissues that surround and support the testicles). Both types can be benign or cancerous and both types may present with one or more of the following signs and symptoms: painless lump in the testicles, pain in the abdomen or back, difficulty breathing, streaks of blood in the sputum.

The exact cause of testicular cancers in children is not known. Associated risk factors include males with undescended testicles, family history of testicular cancer, previous history of testicular cancer and congenital abnormalities of the testicles.
