    B. Testicular cancer is very difficult to diagnose
    C. Testicular cancer is the number one cause of cancer deaths in males
    D. Testicular cancer is more common in older men

Correct Answer: A. Testicular cancer is a highly curable type of cancer

Option B: Self-examination allows early detection and facilitates the early initiation of treatment.
Option C: The highest mortality rates from cancer among men are in men with lung cancer.
Option D: Testicular cancer is found more commonly in younger men.
