Prostate cancer is one of the most common forms of cancer for men. It is a dangerous tumor of the prostate. In most men, the cancer grows very slowly. Many men with the disease will never know they have it. Early prostate cancer is confined to the prostate gland itself. Most men with this type of cancer can live for years with no problems.
Testicular cancer is cancer in a man’s testicle. Compared with other types of cancer, testicular cancer is rare.
Testicular cancer may spread slowly or quickly. Testicular cancer usually spreads to nearby lymph nodes, the lungs, the liver, bones, and possibly the brain.
Testicular cancer is highly treatable, even when cancer has spread beyond the testicle. Depending on the type and stage of testicular cancer, you may receive one of several treatments, or a combination. Regular testicular self-examinations can help identify growths early, when the chance for successful treatment of testicular cancer is highest.
Penile cancer begin as a blister on the foreskin, head or shaft of the penis and then become a wart-like growth that discharges watery pus — also is a rare possibility.
Human papillomavirus infection (HPV) may increase the risk of developing penile cancer, which is why it is important to use condoms during sex.
Men who were not circumcised at birth may also have a higher risk of developing penile cancer.
Signs of penile cancer include sores, discharge, and bleeding.
These and other signs may be caused by penile cancer or by other conditions so make sure to check with your doctor if you have any of the following:
-Redness, irritation, or a sore on the penis.
-A lump on the penis.
Tests that examine the penis are used to detect (find) and diagnose penile cancer.
