If you were born with undescended testicles, having surgery to correct this condition may reduce your risk of getting testicular cancer. Many of the other risk factors, such as age, race, and history of cancer, cannot be changed.
Talk to your doctor right away if you notice any changes in your testicles or experience any symptoms.
