“Testicular cancer is a relatively rare form of cancer which can affect men between the ages of 15 and 44. According to the NHS, over 95% of men are completely cured if their disease was diagnosed in the early stages. It is clear that misdiagnosis can have serious consequences.”
What Is Testicular Cancer & What Are The Symptoms?
Testicular cancer is the abnormal growth of cancerous cells in the scrotum. Symptoms of the disease can include:
- Painless lumps developing in the testicles
- Swelling of the testicles and a general feeling of heaviness
- Dull pain in the scrotum
If you are experiencing any of the symptoms listed above, it is important that you visit your GP as soon as possible.
The early diagnosis of testicular cancer is extremely important. If your GP fails to recognise your symptoms or if your symptoms are thought to be the effects of another medical condition, this can seriously damage your chances of making a full recovery. Your doctor is legally responsible for your welfare and any delays in treatment can worsen your condition. In cases such as these, you may be able to make a medical negligence claim.
