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.
