Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern.
Most common symptoms of testicular cancer are painless testicular enlargement and backache.
In advance cases there may be chest symptoms as well.
Treatment depends upon stage and nature of tumor.
Common therapies are surgical intervention like Orchiectomy and Radical lymph node dissection,Chemotherapy like BEP regimen containing bleomycin,etopside and cisplatin.
In very few cases radiotherapy can also used.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
