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.
If you are at risk for testicular cancer, talk to your doctor about what type of testicular cancer screenings you should have and what else you may be able to do to reduce your risk.
