Testicular Cancer Risk Factors 

 

Your risk of testicular cancer may increase because of:

  • Family history. If family members have had testicular cancer, you may have an increased risk.
  • Age. Testicular cancer affects teens and younger men, particularly those between ages 15 and 35. However, it can occur at any age.
  • Race. Testicular cancer is more common in white men than in black men.
  • An undescended testicle.
