There are a number of different cells found in the testicles, and any one of them can mutate into a form of cancer. More than ninety percent of all cases of testicular cancer begin the cells known as germ cells. There are two primary types of germ cell tumours: nonseminomas and seminomas. Nonseminomas comprise of group of cancers, including the choriocarcinoma, embryonal carcinoma, teratoma and yolk sac tumors. Seminomas make up about forty percent of all germ cell testicular tumours and occur more commonly in men aged twenty five to fifty five. Late diagnosis or mis-diagnosis of testicular cancer may be due to medical negligence and give rise to a personal injury compensation claim for damage and loss.

Testicular cancer is the most common type of cancer found in younger men between the ages of fifteen to thirty five. That being said, this disease makes up less than two percent of all cancers found in men. Testicular cancer is often curable. The two forms of this disease are prone to misdiagnosis.

Symptoms

In most cases of testicular cancer the most common symptom is swelling, which is often not associated with pain, but may be tender to the touch, may feel a bit achy, or there may be a feeling of heaviness in one testicle. Some patients report their first symptoms as a stomach ache, backache, or a cough. Coughs tend to develop as the cancer begins to spread throughout the body. If for any reason a medical professional does not carry out all of the necessary tests, or take the time to complete a full examination, medical negligence may have occurred. Since the symptoms are often somewhat vague, it is quite common that testicular cancer is dismissed as something more minor or misdiagnosed all together. A proper diagnosis should include a complete physical examination, an ultrasound scan, a biopsy, and in some cases, surgery. Late diagnosis or mis-diagnosis of testicular cancer may be due to medical negligence and give rise to a personal injury compensation claim for damage and loss.

Diagnosis

The best possible chance for a full recovery from testicular cancer depends upon an accurate and fast diagnosis. If for any reason there is a delay in diagnosis, or there has been a complete misdiagnosis, you may have grounds for a legal claim. These claims are issued in a court of law and strive to offer some compensation for the damage that has been done to the victim. In some cases, the victim perishes and is not able to deal with a claim which may be filed on behalf of the victim by the surviving family members.
