What are the symptoms of testicular cancer? The word cancer itself is so scary. The thought of it gives me the shivers. Just for general knowledge I want to know what this type of cancer is all about. What are the problems that a person with this disease faces? I know cancer is incurable because, I feel that a person who gets once will keep getting it. Is the prostate gland cancer and the testicular cancer the same thing, if not, what is the difference? Are the symptoms of both the same?
