Statistics About Testicular Cancer

Statistics About Testicular Cancer

 

Some people use statistics to try to figure out their chance of getting cancer or of being cured. However, statistics show only what happens with large groups of people. Because no two people are the same, you cannot use them to know or predict what might happen to you.

These are 2012 statistics from the American Cancer Society about testicular cancer:

  • About 8,590 new cases of testicular cancer will be diagnosed in the United States this year.

  • About 360 men will die of testicular cancer this year.

  • A man's risk of getting testicular cancer in his lifetime is about 1 in 270. The risk of dying from this cancer is about 1 in 5,000.
