Other rare testicular cancers

Every year, a small number of men are diagnosed with a type of testicular cancer that does not fall into the common categories of seminomas and non-seminomas

About rare testicular cancer

There are two main types of rare testicular cancer. These are called lymphoma and mesothelioma. At HCA UK, our network of world-leading consultants are experts at treating rare forms of testicular cancer.

  • Symptoms of rare testicular cancer icon plus

    Symptoms of rare testicular cancer may include:

    • a lump or swelling in the testicle
    • a heavy scrotum
    • discomfort or pain in a testicle or the scrotum

    It is important to check your testicles regularly for any lumps or swellings. These symptoms can often be related to a number of non-cancerous conditions. If you experience any of these symptoms, it is important to see your GP so that a referral and diagnosis can be made as quickly as possible.

    We offer a number of investigations and tests to confirm a diagnosis of testicular cancer, including:

    • blood tests

Rare types of testicular cancer

Lymphoma

Lymphoma mostly occurs in older men, over the age of 50. It is a cancer of the lymphatic system that can sometimes occur in the testicles.

Mesothelioma

Mesothelioma usually starts in the chest or abdomen, in the cells that make up the covering layers of the body, and spreads to the testicles. It very rarely starts in the testicles.
