Si nació con criptorquidia , una cirugía para corregir esta afección puede disminuir su riesgo de padecer cáncer testicular . Existen muchos otros factores de riesgo, como edad, raza y antecedentes de cáncer, que no se pueden cambiar.

Si está en riesgo de cáncer testicular, consulte con su médico sobre qué tipo de exámenes de detección se debe realizar y qué más puede hacer para reducir su riesgo.
