Testicular Cancer Diagnosis

At Penn Medicine's Abramson Cancer Center, our urologic cancer specialists understand an accurate and quick diagnosis of testicular cancer is the key to offering the best treatment options in a timely and efficient manner.

Our urologic oncologists have extensive experience in urologic surgery, radiation oncology, medical oncology and testicular cancer research. They are also leading the way in developing new treatments for testicular cancer.

At the Abramson Cancer Center, you will benefit from a multidisciplinary team of cancer specialists within the urologic cancer program including urologists, radiation oncologists, medical oncologists, interventional radiologists, and pathologists who work together to provide an accurate diagnosis. After a diagnosis has been made, we develop an appropriate treatment plan that is customized specifically for you.

Screening for Testicular Cancer

Screening tests may be used to find some types of cancer early. Some screening tests, such as colonoscopies for colorectal cancer, are standard or routine. Other screening tests may be recommended only if a person has an increased risk for cancer.

Currently, there is no routine screening for testicular cancer. Most often, testicular cancer is first found by men themselves, either by chance or during self-exam. Sometimes, testicular cancer is found by a doctor during a routine physical exam.
