How Testicular Cancer is Diagnosed

Initially your doctor will make a physical examination to test to see if there is a mass present that is actually separate from the testes themselves. After that he will probably also conduct an ultrasound examination, this will confirm the presence of an mass. He may also test for particular blood serum markers, whose presence also confirms testicular cancer. However, patients presenting within the early stages of testicular cancer may not show any positive blood serum markers, so bear in mind that even if your blood serum test is negative this may not necessarily rule out the possibility that you have testicular cancer. If the doctor diagnoses the presence of a tumour, a biopsy will be preformed to remove it.

Testicular cancer may spread throughout the body by means of the blood stream or the system of lymph nodes as it advances. There after cancer may show up in the lungs, liver, bones and sometimes the brain, so it is important to see your physician immediately if you have any suspicion hat you may have testicular cancer.

Green Tea
Numerous studies have shown that green tea catechins have a preventative effect on several different type of cancer. Epigallocatechin gallate is responsible for these beneficial effects, but not only can this powerful antioxidant protect your body against cancer, it can actually binds to a protein found on tumor cells and dramatically slows their growth. Studies have show green tea to be beneficial for a range of cancers including testicular cancer.

The Maitake Mushroom
Maitake mushrooms have been noted in Japan for centuries for their ability to improve over all health.

Recent research appears to confirm maitake's ability to prevent tumour growth. The main active ingredient in maitake is a substance called D-fraction. This substance promoted the immune system to fight carcinogens and cancer tumours.

Numerous studies have shown that garlic may also be effective at preventing and reducing cancer risk. Studies have shown that garlic components can affect different types of cancer and different carcinogens, particularly prostate and testicular cancers.
