Testicular tumors are growths on the testicle that can occur in boys. They can be benign or malignant.
They occur most often in boys under age 5 and sometimes in boys who experience puberty early.
Most testicular tumors are benign and, though they do not spread, still require an operation.
Malignant testicular tumors can spread (metastasize) to other parts of the body, most commonly the lungs, liver, lymph nodes and central nervous system (brain or spinal cord).
