Re: Testicular cancer

What are the common causes of testicular cancer?

As with most cancers testicular cancer has been linked to viral infections.  In this case Epstein Barr virus (EBV), cytomegalovirus and human endogenous retrovirus type K (HERV-K).

And what are the risk factors for the common causes?

The first two viruses are sexually transmitted viruses.

Likewise - for non testicular cancer lumps, i.e. non cancerous lumps, what are the common causes, and risk factors for the common causes?

These could be a hydrocele, variocele, spermatocele, cyst, pseudocyst, granuloma, hemangioma or benign tumor.  Knowing which one specifically would be a big help.
