In most cases, the causes of testicular cancer are unclear. Doctors know that it occurs when healthy cells in the testicle become altered. In other words, it is clear that all testicular cancers begin in the germ cells, but the reasons why these cells become abnormal and develop into cancer are still unknown.
Some risk factors include cryptorchidism, abnormal testicle development, family history, age, and race.
