Testicular cancer develops in one or both of the testicles (testes), which produce and store sperm and testosterone and are located under the penis in the sac-like pouch (scrotum). Compared with other types of cancer, testicular cancer is rare, but it's one of the most common cancers diagnosed in young men. Most men with testicular cancer can be successfully treated, especially when the cancer is detected early. Even testicular cancer that has spread may respond well to treatment.
