Three-dimensional visualization reconstructed from scanned human data. Lateral view of heathly cross-sectioned testicle, as well as the penis. Over 95% of testicular cancer originates from the germ cells (the cells that produce sperm) of the testes; other types of testicular cancer arise from the other cells found in the testes. Although it represents less than one percent of cancers in men, testicular cancer is the leading cause of cancer in men aged 15 to 40. The cure rate is one of the highest of all cancers: the cure rate for all types and stages of testicular cancer combined is more than 90%; the most common treatment is the removal of the affected testicle. Testicular self-exams, as well as an annual doctor's exam are important to early diagnosis.
