How common is testicular cancer?

In 2000 (the last year for which figures are available) there were 2,000 new cases of testicular cancer diagnosed in the UK.   In the USA, it is estimated that there will be 9,000 new cases diagnosed in 2004.  This means it is between 1% and 2% of all cancers in men.  The number of cases has been slowly increasing for some time.
