Testicular cancer symptoms, risk factors and early detection

Dr. Matthew Sorensen, medical oncologist, discusses early warning symptoms of testicular cancer, risk factors, and survival rates when detected early compared to more complicated treatments needed when it has spread.

Dr. Sorensen is University of Colorado Health's medical director of oncology in northern Colorado, practicing primarily in the Cancer Care and Hematology clinic in Fort Collins.

Early detection can prevent testicular cancer from spreading and reduce treatment complexity

A young man shares his journey with testicular cancer, from the symptoms, to detection, to treatment, to remission.

He discusses what a surprise this diagnosis was as many of the typical cancer risk factors such as smoking and drinking did not apply to him.

He talks about how much more difficult treatment was because he had waited to see a doctor.
