Testicular cancer (वृषण कैंसर) is cancer that develops in the testicles, a part of the male reproductive system. Symptoms may include a lump in the testicle or swelling or pain in the scrotum. Treatment may result in infertility. This being a most dreaded disease, know about testicular cancer, symptoms, risk factors, causes, diagnosis, staging, prognosis, epidemiology, survival rate, ultrasound, radiation therapy, and treatments. You can also learn free Siddha energy remedies without money and medicines through Siddha Spirituality of Swami Hardas Life System.
Testicular cancer risk factors (वृषण कैंसर के जोखिम कारक)
Scientists have found a few risk factors that make someone more likely to develop testicular cancer. Most boys and men with testicular cancer don’t have any of the known risk factors. Risk factors for testicular cancer include:
- An undescended testicle
- Family history of testicular cancer
- HIV infection
- Carcinoma in situ of the testicle
- Having had testicular cancer before
- Being of a certain race/ethnicity
- Body size
The most common type is germ cell tumors which are divided into seminomas and nonseminomas. Other types include sex-cord stromal tumors and lymphomas.
Testicular cancer Symptoms (वृषण कैंसर के लक्षण)
One of the first symptoms of testicular cancer is often a lump or swelling in the testes. The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) recommends against routine screening for testicular cancer in asymptomatic adolescents and adults including routine testicular self-exams. However, the American Cancer Society suggests that some men should examine their testicles monthly, especially if they have a family history of cancer.
Symptoms may also include one or more of the following:
- A lump in one testis which may or may not be painful
- Sharp pain or a dull ache in the lower abdomen or scrotum
- A feeling often described as heaviness in the scrotum
- The firmness of the testicle
- Breast enlargement from hormonal effects of β-hCG
- Low back pain due to cancer spreading to the lymph nodes along the back
It is not very common for testicular cancer to spread to other organs, apart from the lungs. If it has, however, the following symptoms may be present:
- Shortness of breath, cough or coughing up blood from metastatic spread to the lungs
- A lump in the neck due to metastases to the lymph nodes
Testicular cancer, cryptorchidism, hypospadias, and poor semen quality make up the syndrome known as testicular dysgenesis syndrome.
Testicular cancer Causes (वृषण कैंसर के कारण)
A major risk factor for the development of testis cancer is cryptorchidism. It is generally believed that the presence of a tumor contributes to cryptorchidism; when cryptorchidism occurs in conjunction with a tumor then the tumor tends to be large.
Other risk factors include inguinal hernias, Klinefelter syndrome, and mumps orchitis. Physical activity is associated with decreased risk and a sedentary lifestyle is associated with increased risk. These may reflect endogenous or environmental hormones.
Testicular cancer Mechanism (वृषण कैंसर तंत्र)
Most testicular germ cell tumors have too many chromosomes, and most often they are triploid to tetraploid. An isochromosome 12p is present in about 80% of the testicular cancers, and also the other cancers usually have extra material from this chromosome arm through other mechanisms of genomic amplification.
Testicular cancer Diagnosis (वृषण कैंसर का निदान)
The main way testicular cancer diagnosed is via a lump or mass inside a testis. More generally, if a young adult or adolescent has a single enlarged testicle, which may or may not be painful, this should give doctors a reason to suspect testicular cancer.
Other conditions may also have symptoms similar to testicular cancer:
- Epididymitis or epididymo orchitis
- Prostate infections or inflammations, bladder infections or inflammations, or kidney infections or inflammations which have spread to and caused swelling in the vessels of the testicles or scrotum
- Testicular torsion or a hernia
- Infection, inflammation, retro-peritonitis, or other conditions of the lymph nodes or vessels near the scrotum, testicles, pubis, anorectal area, and groin
- Benign tumors or lesions of the testicles
- Metastasis to the testicles from another, primary tumor site
The nature of any palpated lump in the scrotum is often evaluated by scrotal ultrasound, which can determine the exact location, size, and some characteristics of the lump, such as cystic vs solid, uniform vs heterogeneous, sharply circumscribed or poorly defined. The extent of the disease is evaluated by CT scans, which are used to locate metastases.
Blood tests are also used to identify and measure tumor markers usually proteins present in the bloodstream that are specific to testicular cancer. Alpha-fetoprotein, human chorionic gonadotropin (the pregnancy hormone), and LDH-1 are the typical tumor markers used to spot testicular germ cell tumors.
Testicular cancer Ultrasound (वृषण कैंसर अल्ट्रासाउंड)
During an ultrasound, you lie on your back with your legs spread. An ultrasound test can help your doctor determine the nature of any testicular lumps, such as whether the lumps are solid or fluid-filled. An ultrasound also tells your doctor whether lumps are inside or outside of the testicle.
Testicular cancer Screening (वृषण कैंसर की जांच)
The American Academy of Family Physicians recommends against screening males without symptoms for testicular cancer.
Testicular cancer Staging (वृषण कैंसर चरण)
After removal, the testicle is fixed with Bouin’s solution because it better conserves some morphological details such as nuclear conformation. The size of the tumor in the testis is irrelevant to staging.
In broad terms, testicular cancer is staged as follows:
- I: Remains localized to the testis
- II: Involves the testis and metastasis to retroperitoneal and/or paraaortic lymph nodes
- III: The testis and metastasis remains beyond the retroperitoneal and paraaortic lymph nodes
Testicular cancer Classification (वृषण कैंसर वर्गीकरण)
More than 95% of testicular cancers are germ cell tumors (GCTs). However, most of the remaining 5% are sex cord-gonadal stromal tumors derived from Leydig cells or Sertoli cells. Correct diagnosis is necessary to ensure the most effective and appropriate treatment.
Most pathologists use the World Health Organization classification system for testicular tumors:
- Germ cell tumors
- Precursor lesions
- Tumors of one histologic type (pure forms)
- Tumors of more than one histologic type (mixed forms)
- Sex cord/Gonadal stromal tumors
- Leydig cell tumor
- Sertoli cell tumor
- Intratubular Sertoli cell neoplasia in Peutz-Jeghers syndrome
- Granulosa cell tumor
- Thecoma Fibroma Group
- Sex cord/gonadal stromal tumor – incompletely differentiated
- Sex cord/gonadal stromal tumor – mixed types
- Mixed Germ Cell and Sex Cord/Gonadal Stromal Tumors
- Germ cell-sex cord/gonadal stromal tumor, unclassified
- Miscellaneous tumors of the testis
- Tumors of ovarian epithelial types
- Hematopoietic tumors
- Tumors of collecting ducts and rete
- Tumors of the paratesticular structures
- Adenomatoid tumor
- Malignant and Benign Mesothelioma
- Adenocarcinoma of the epididymis
- Papillary cystadenoma of the epididymis
- Melanotic neuroectodermal tumor
- Desmoplastic small round cell tumor
- Mesenchymal tumors of the spermatic cord and testicular adnexa
- Aggressive angiomyxoma
- An angiomyofibroblastoma-like tumor (see Myxoma)
- Solitary fibrous tumor
- Secondary tumors of the testis
Testicular cancer Treatment (वृषण कैंसर का इलाज)
The three basic types of treatment are:
- Surgery (performed by urologists)
- Radiation therapy (administered by radiation oncologists), and
- Chemotherapy (is the work of Medical Oncologists)
While treatment success depends on the stage, the average survival rate after five years is around 95%, and stage I cancer cases, if monitored properly, have essentially a 100% survival rate.
Testicle removal (अंडकोष निकालना)
The initial treatment for testicular cancer is surgery to remove the affected testicle.
Since only one testis is typically required to maintain fertility, hormone production, and other male functions, the afflicted testis is almost always removed completely in a procedure called inguinal orchiectomy.
Retroperitoneal lymph node dissection (रेट्रोपरिटोनियल लिम्फ नोड विच्छेदन)
In the case of nonseminomas that appear to be stage I, surgery may be done on the retroperitoneal/para-aortic lymph nodes to accurately determine whether the cancer is in stage I or stage II and to reduce the risk that malignant testicular cancer cells that may have metastasized to lymph nodes in the lower abdomen. This surgery is called retroperitoneal lymph node dissection (RPLND).
Adjuvant treatment (सहायक उपचार)
Since testicular cancers can spread, patients are usually offered adjuvant treatment – in the form of chemotherapy or radiotherapy – to kill any cancerous cells that may exist outside of the affected testicle. The type of adjuvant therapy depends largely on the histology of the tumor and the stage of progression at the time of surgery. If the cancer is not particularly advanced, patients may be offered careful surveillance by periodic CT scans and blood tests, in place of adjuvant treatment.
Radiation therapy (विकिरण उपचार)
Stage II seminoma cancers are treated with radiation therapy, however, adjuvant therapy is applied in the case of stage I seminomas.
Testicular cancer Chemotherapy (वृषण कैंसर कीमोथेरेपी)
Non-seminoma (गैर सेमिनोमा)
Chemotherapy is the standard treatment for non-seminoma when cancer has spread to other parts of the body.
As an adjuvant treatment, the use of chemotherapy as an alternative to radiation therapy in the treatment of seminoma is increasing, because radiation therapy appears to have more significant long-term side effects e.g. internal scarring, increased risks of secondary malignancies, etc.
Testicular cancer Prognosis (वृषण कैंसर का रोग)
Treatment of testicular cancer is one of the success stories of modern medicine, with sustained response to treatment in more than 90% of cases, regardless of stage. By 2013 more than 96 percent of the 2,300 men diagnosed each year in the U.K. were deemed cured, a rise by almost a third since the 1970s, the improvement attributed substantially to the chemotherapy drug cisplatin. In the United States, when the disease is treated while it is still localized, more than 99% of people survive 5 years.
For many patients with stage I cancer, adjuvant therapy following surgery may not be appropriate and patients will undergo surveillance instead. The form this surveillance takes, e.g. the type and frequency of investigations and the length time it should continue, will depend on the type of cancer, but the aim is to avoid unnecessary treatments in the many patients who are cured by their surgery, and ensure that any relapses with metastases are detected early and cured.
A man with one remaining testis may maintain fertility. However, sperm banking may be appropriate for men who still plan to have children, since fertility may be adversely affected by chemotherapy and/or radiotherapy.
A man who loses both testicles will be infertile after the procedure, though he may elect to bank viable, cancer-free sperm prior to the procedure.
The testicular cancer Survival rate (वृषण कैंसर जीवन रक्षा दर)
Globally testicular cancer resulted in 8,300 deaths in 2013 up from 7,000 deaths in 1990. Testicular cancer has the highest survival rate in the U.S. and Europe and is uncommon in Asia and Africa. Worldwide incidence has doubled since the 1960s, with the highest rates of survival rate in Scandinavia, Germany, and New Zealand.
Although testicular cancer is most common among men aged 15–40 years, it has three peaks: infancy through the age of four as teratomas and yolk sac tumors, ages 25–40 years as post-pubertal seminomas and nonseminomas, and from age 60 as spermatocytic seminomas.
Germ cell tumors of the testis are the most common cancer in young men between the ages of 15 and 35 years.
United States (संयुक्त राज्य अमेरिका)
The risk of testicular cancer in white men is approximately 4-5 times the risk in black men and more than three times that of Asian American men. The risk of testicular cancer in Latinos and American Indians is between that of white and Asian men. The cause of these differences is unknown.
United Kingdom (यूनाइटेड किंगडम)
Over a lifetime, the risk is roughly 1 in 200 (0.5%). It is the 16th most common cancer in men, which accounts for less than 1% of cancer deaths in men i.e. around 60 men died in 2012.
