Frequently Asked Questions

How is testicular cancer diagnosed?

When caught early, testicular cancer has a high survival rate, with little risk of it spreading to the rest of the body. However, this depends on medical professionals making a timely diagnosis after you’ve visited them with some of the symptoms associated with testicular cancer, such as:

  • A swelling or lump in the testicles
  • A dull ache in the testicles
  • Heaviness in the scrotum

The methods used by doctors to diagnose testicular cancer include:

  • Physical examination
  • Blood tests
  • Ultrasound
  • Orchidectomy (removing one or more testicles) and performing a biopsy

Delayed diagnosis can lead to testicular cancer becoming more serious and potentially life-threatening, so it’s vital that the symptoms are taken seriously. If you’re worried that you received negligent treatment from a GP or consultant, our solicitors could help you work out exactly went wrong in your case, seeking an explanation from those responsible.

What can be mistaken for testicular cancer?

Only a small number of lumps or swellings in the scrotum are cancerous.

Testicular cancer can often be misdiagnosed as a testicular cyst (also called a spermatocele). A cyst is a sac filled with fluid that develops within the testicle. Testicular cysts are normally non-cancerous and won’t spread to other parts of the body.

Swollen blood vessels (varicoceles) can also cause lumps in the testicles. A medical professional may mistake testicular cancer for this condition.

What counts as medical negligence?

You can experience medical negligence at any point during your treatment, from diagnosis to aftercare.

Medical negligence can commonly occur in the following ways:

  • Not being examined properly
  • Being diagnosed with the wrong condition
  • Not being referred to a specialist
  • Misinterpreting test results
  • Performing an inaccurate biopsy (or not doing one at all).

If you think you’ve been treated negligently by a healthcare professional, contact us to see if you could claim compensation.
