But in this article we will discuss only testicular cancer which is a cancer of testes and its Ayurvedic treatment.


Testicular cancer is defined as the cancer of testes. There is an unusual cell growth in the part of the testes. Testes are pairs of two oval shaped organs that are hanging between the legs of the male. This testes rests in the sac known as scrotum. They are useful for the production of sperm. This testicular cancer is mostly found in men aged 15-44 years. Basically this type of cancer is easily treatable until or unless this cancer is not spread to other parts too, because early identification or diagnosis of this condition makes a good prognosis.

Types of testicular cancer

There are two main types of testicular cancer i.e. seminomas and nonseminomas.

1. Seminomas

This type of cancer grows and spreads very slowly. It also has two subtypes i.e. classical seminoma which is most common and usually happens in men from age 25-45 and spermatocytic seminoma which occurs in older men

2. Nonseminomas

This type of cancer grows and spreads very quickly. These are made up of more than one type of cancer cell i.e. Embryonal carcinoma, Yolk sac carcinoma, Choriocarcinoma and Teratoma
