I assume you are speaking of the differences and similarities of testicular and prostate cancer.

Early stage prostate cancer may not cause signs or symptoms in its early stages. Advanced prostate cancer may cause signs and symptoms such as:

    * Trouble urinating
    * Decreased force in the stream of urine
    * Blood in your urine
    * Blood in your semen
    * Swelling in your legs
    * Discomfort in the pelvic area
    * Bone pain

Signs and symptoms of testicular cancer include:

    * A lump or enlargement in either testicle
    * A feeling of heaviness in the scrotum
    * A dull ache in the abdomen or groin
    * A sudden collection of fluid in the scrotum
    * Pain or discomfort in a testicle or the scrotum
    * Enlargement or tenderness of the breasts
    * Unexplained fatigue or a general feeling of not being well

Best of luck,
