The male gland known as testes or testicles is likely to initiate testicular cancer. This is normal in humans 15 to 44 years of age and though it can impact a man or boy of any age.

The Testicles

The testes belong to the reproductive system of the male. The two tiny egg cells are placed beneath the penis in a scrotum. There is a firm, rather spongy feel on the testicles. Testicle’s firmness will still remain the same. The testicles should also have approximately the same size, although they may be bigger than the other. A tube-like structure called the epididymis is at the top and outside of the bottom.
Sperm matures in the testicles. Male hormones such as testosterone are also formed in the testes. This hormone governs men’s sex drive. It also starts muscle, bone, and hair development.
