Testicular cancer is one of the less common cancers and, according to Cancer Research UK, it most often affects men aged 30-34. Thankfully, with timely treatment, survival rates are around 98%.

However, if you think you’ve received negligent treatment from the medical profession – such as delayed diagnosis or misdiagnosis – talk to us. You may have a claim for testicular cancer medical negligence.

What is testicular cancer?

There are several different types of testicular cancer. Typical symptoms are a painless swelling, lump or change in shape of the testicles.

The most common form (around 95%) is called “germ cell testicular cancer” – and there are two types of:

  • Seminomas
    These are usually slow-growing tumours that are unlikely to spread to other parts of the body.
  • Nonseminomas
    A more aggressive type that has a higher risk of spreading beyond the testicles.

Treatment depends on:

  • What stage the cancer is and whether it has spread
  • Level of blood proteins
  • Your health and lifestyle

Surgery to remove the affected testicle is the most common form of treatment. A combination of surgery, monitoring, chemotherapy and radiotherapy may alternatively be recommended.

When can you make a testicular cancer claim?

If your care or treatment has been below an acceptable standard, then you may be able to make a medical negligence claim. If, for example:

  • A GP failed to recognise signs or symptoms
  • There was an unreasonable delay in being referred for tests or treatment
  • Incorrect reading of test results
  • Diagnosis of another condition or illness
  • Test results are not followed up, resulting in a treatment delay
