Testicular Cancer- The testicles, part of the male reproductive system, are organs beneath the penis contained within a sac of skin called the scrotum. Testicular cancer occurs when malignant cells are found in the tissues of one or both testicles. Malignant cells or tumors usually do not appear before puberty and appear in early boyhood or adolescence. In older boys, a history of undescended testis (a testicle that fails to reach the normal position in the scrotum) is associated with a higher risk of developing testicular cancer.
