Compared with other types of cancer, testicular cancer is rare. But testicular cancer is the most common cancer in American males between the ages of 15 and 35. Learn More

Diet and Nutrition 

To help you plan nutritious meals for cancer & prevention, AICR recommends using a simple model called the New American Plate: Fill at least 2/3 of your plate with plant foods such as fruits, vegetables, beans, and whole grains and no more than 1/3 of your plate with lean meat, poultry, fish, and low-fat dairy foods.

 

Following the New American plate model can help you control your weight too.  Extra body fat increases the risk for certain cancers and other chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.
