Testicular cancer is the most common form of cancer in men ages 15 to 35. The American Cancer Society (ACS) estimates that there will be approximately 9,310 new cases of testicular cancer diagnosed in the United States in 2018.Testicular cancer grows in the tissues of one or both testes—glands that are located in the scrotum. Most cases of testicular cancer start out in the sperm-making cells known as germ cells. Testicular cancer can be classified into seminoma and nonseminoma. Although aggressive, both cancer types are curable even when metastatic.

Negative Fateful Life Events and the Brains of Middle-Aged Men

Conflict, a death in the family, financial hardship and serious medical crises are all associated with accelerated physical aging. In a new study, researchers at the University of California San Diego School of Medicine found that such negative fateful life events — or FLEs — appear to also specifically accelerate aging in the brain.
