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.
