Cancer answers: How is testicular cancer detected?

Written by Community Health Network on 4/15/2014 7:00:00 AM

Your doctor will obtain a detailed medical history from you and perform a physical examination, including an examination of the testicles. The next step is typically an ultrasound. This is a painless test in which a probe is placed over the testicle(s) and the images are evaluated by the doctor. This test alone can often determine whether or not there is cancer. However, blood work, X-rays and/or CT scans may be performed depending on your individual situation.
