  • Painless (or at times painful) lump/swelling in either testicle.
  • Change in how the testicles feel.
  • Dull pain in lower abdomen and groin.
  • Pain/discomfort in a testicle or scrotum.
  • Gynecomastia (growth of breasts in men) in human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG)-producing tumors.
  • Early puberty in case of androgen-producing tumors.

Other testicular cancer symptoms of the metastatic disease include pain in the back due to the spread of disease to abdominal lymph nodes, shortness of breath, chest pain, cough due to the spread of disease to the lungs, seizures/headache due to spread of the tumor to brain, etc.

Any one or more of the above symptoms if present may require further investigations.
