The most common symptom of testicular cancer is a lump or swelling in one of your testicles.

The lump or swelling can be about the size of a pea, but may be larger.

Most lumps or swellings in the scrotum aren't in the testicle and aren't a sign of cancer. But they should never be ignored. Visit your GP as soon as you notice a lump or swelling in your scrotum.

Associated symptoms

Testicular cancer can also cause other symptoms, including a:

  • dull ache or sharp pain in your testicles or scrotum, which may come and go

  • feeling of heaviness in your scrotum

  • change in the texture or increase in firmness of a testicle

  • difference between one testicle and the other
