Testicular Cancer Claims
Testicular cancer is a less common form of cancer, in fact according to the NHS it accounts for just 1% of all the cancers that occur in men, with about 2300 people being diagnosed every year in the UK.
Unlike most cancers testicular cancer tends to affect younger men and almost all men who are treated for testicular gem cell tumours are cured.
However, if you have been misdiagnosed by a medical professional and it has caused your condition to worsen, or for you to suffer then you could be entitled to make a claim.

A bit about testicular cancer
Each year in the UK, around 2,200 men are diagnosed with testicular cancer. It is more common in white men and in younger to middle-aged men. Typical symptoms include a painless lump or swelling in one of the testicles or the change in shape or texture.
It is important that you are aware of what feels normal so that you notice any changes that happen.
There are two main types of testicular cancer – seminomas and non-seminomas.
These usually occur in men between 25–55 years of age. About 40–45 in 100 (40–45%) of men with testicular cancer have a seminoma.
Non-seminomas usually affect younger men aged between 15–35 years old. They occur in about 40–45 in 100 (40–45%) of men with testicular cancer.
The most common symptom is a lump in a testicle, but there may also be other symptoms.
Symptoms can include:
- swelling or a lump in a testicle, which is usually painless – occasionally the swelling may suddenly increase in size and become painful
- a dull ache or pain, or heaviness in the scrotum.
