Will The Cancer Come Back?

Men who have been treated for cancer in one testicle have about a 1% chance of developing cancer in the remaining testicle.

If cancer recurs, it is almost always a new disease rather than a spread from the previous cancer. Because of this tendency, a man should:

  • Be checked regularly by his doctor
  • Continue to do a testicular self-examination every month

Any unusual symptoms should be reported to the doctor immediately. It is extremely important for treatment and cure to detect a new cancer as early as possible.
