Testicular Cancer

Risk Factors

The risk factors associated with testicular cancer are:

  • Undescended testicles: In this disorder, one or both testicles do not descend into the scrotum prior to birth. Such patients are at increased risk for testicular cancer.
  • Family history: Individuals whose father or brother has or ever had testicular cancer are at increased risk for developing this condition.
  • Age: Testicular cancer may occur at any age. However, people between 24 to 34 years of age are at increased risk.
  • Race and ethnicity: White people are at 4 to 5 times higher risk than Asian-American and Black men.
  • Body size: Studies have reported that tall men are at increased risk of testicular cancer.
  • HIV infection: Patients infected with the human immunodeficiency virus are at increased risk for testicular cancer.
