    I've always wondered how does Testicular cancer actually kill? i know cancer cells reproduce rapidly which can be seen as a large lump, but even if that does occur, would it have to of gone through the blood stream in order to kill? i mean would it have to travel towards the brain in order for it kill people?
    sorry if it hurts anyone, i dont mean to i'm just worried.

    thanks, if anyone answers.

      Our local oncologist said that what will eventually kill you is infection caused by the malfunction of organs that have been damaged because of the cancer.
