Testicular cancer requires expert care.
Know your options.

Though rare among the general population, testicular cancer is the most common cancer in young men between 15 and 44 years old. The median age of a patient diagnosed with the disease is 33, exactly half the median age of all new patients for all cancers combined.

At Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA), we use a range of tools and technologies to diagnose testicular cancer. After a comprehensive diagnostic evaluation of the disease, our doctors will work with you to develop a treatment plan tailored to your needs, preferences and goals. We also offer supportive care to help with pain management and to address the emotional and sexual impacts this type of cancer may cause.

"There is so much more to the experience of CTCA than just the treatment. Some people have asked me why I travel for treatment, why I don’t just go somewhere local. Doesn’t it make life complicated? No, it doesn’t. CTCA takes the worry away. Scheduling, appointments, all of these details are taken care of. My response when people ask me about the inconvenience of traveling for treatment is that all I need to do is get there and get myself home. CTCA takes care of everything else."
