Testicular cancer one of the most commonly misdiagnosed cancers

Posted on January 22, 2015 8:27 am under Medical Malpractice

Testicular cancer is considered among the most common types of cancer affecting American males aged between 15 and 35. It involves the testes, or the organ located inside the scrotum which is responsible for producing the sperm and male sex hormones.

Testicular cancer is easily detectable through a testicular self examination, which allows you to detect lumps that may indicate cancer tumors. However, some doctors dismiss their patient’s own findings and fail to investigate the condition further through diagnostic examinations. Some doctors even declare testicular cancer as a mild infection, such as epididymitis (inflammation of the epididymis), possibly resulting in a dangerous delay of treatment.
