For people with testicular cancer — as well as cancers of the prostate, bladder and kidneys — the Swedish Cancer Institute offers the services of a renowned team of physicians, surgeons and other specialists. All Swedish testicular-cancer patients benefit from a comprehensive approach to care that begins with state-of-the-art imaging techniques and features the latest treatments and a wide range of high-quality support services.
Testicular cancers are relatively rare, but treatable, and occur predominantly in young and middle-aged men. Testicular cancers are also called germ cell or gonadal cancers, which classifies them within the group of cancers arising from reproductive organs or gonads. Learn more about testicular cancer.
