What are testicular tumors?
Also known as: testicular cancer.
Testicular tumors are growths on the testicle.
When they occur in infant boys less than 2 years of age, they are usually benign (non-cancerous) and don't spread).
When they occur after boys enter puberty, they are more likely to be malignant (cancerous) and can spread.
