Testicular cancer is relatively uncommon, accounting for 1% of all cancers that occur in men and usually affects men between the ages of 15 and 49. Although it is one of the most treatable types of cancer and more than 96% of men with early-stage testicular cancer will be complete cured, it will cause the severe result without any treatment timely.
Therefore, when men have some discomforts about the testicle, they have to go to the hospital and do some related examinations, because many patients are likely to confuse the diseases between testicular cancer and orchitis. When diagnosed as orchitis, it is suggested to take Chinese herbal medicine - diuretic anti-inflammatory pill as the suitable treatment. This pill is made from pure natural herbs and effective to cure orchitis once and for all.
