Can testicle be donated for testicular cancer and stem cell research?

Hi...first, this is not spam, this is a legitimate question. I'm currently writing an article for WWW.WWWW.WW giving men instructions on how to donate a testicle for testicular cancer and stem cell research. Two questions: first, do you know of any organizations conducting such research? Second, would you recommend a physical examination prior to donation? Thanks!
