Testicular Cancer Treatment in Winnipeg

Testicular Cancer is a condition where malignant cells form in the tissues of one or both testicles. Though relatively rare, it’s the most common cancer in young men aged 15-35. Early detection is crucial, as the survival rate is high when diagnosed and treated promptly.

Symptoms can include a lump in the testicle, pain, or discomfort in the groin area. However, many men might not experience noticeable symptoms at all, making regular self-exams and medical check-ups vital.

The treatment for testicular cancer varies based on the stage and type of cancer, but may include surgery, radiation therapy, and chemotherapy. The right course of action depends on the individual’s unique situation.

In layman’s terms: Testicular Cancer is a health challenge that affects the male reproductive glands. Like any other health concern, early detection and appropriate treatment are key to overcoming it successfully.

At Men’s Health Clinic, Manitoba, we offer comprehensive care for individuals dealing with testicular cancer. Our expert team is dedicated to providing top-notch care, guidance, and support from diagnosis to recovery, ensuring every patient’s best health outcome.

Frequently Asked Questions About Testicular Cancer

Men should perform self-examinations on a regular basis and report any concerns for new “lumps” or areas of firmness to their primary care doctor. If you have a concern and do not have a family doctor, contact us at the Men’s Health Clinic for a quick exam. The timely, early detection is key to survival and prompt assessment is required for any concerns.

In men with a suspicious physical exam, an ultrasound is often ordered in additional bloodwork and/or a CT scan. For men with concern for testicular cancer, an expedited appointment with a urologist will be made. The initial treatment requires the surgical removal of the testicle via a small incision in the lower abdomen. Often men are home within 24 hours of surgery. For most men, this small surgery alone is curative, but others may require additional treatments depending in the final pathology.

Importantly, men undergoing testicle removal (orchiectomy) should consider whether they want to have a testicular prosthesis (silicone prosthesis to mimic a regular testicle) and/or sperm freezing performed. We recommend strong consideration to sperm freezing, also known as cryopreservation, since fertility rates decrease with having one testicle and can become ever lower if additional treatments like radiation or chemotherapy are needed. Contact us today if you are interested in cryopreservation.
