Testicular Self-exam.

For men ages 15-35, testicular cancer is the most common form of cancer.

Signs of testicular cancer:

  • Enlargement of a testicle
  • Loss in size of a testicle
  • Heaviness of scrotum
  • Slight ache in the lower abdomen, groin, or back
  • Pain or ache in testicle or scrotum
  • Tenderness in the breast

Do a self-exam MONTHLY for early detection of testicular cancer:

  1. If possible, stand in front of a mirror.
  2. Hold one testicle at a time in your hands between the thumbs and fingers.
  3. Check for any unusual lumps, change in size or consistency, or smooth and rounded bumps.
  4. If you notice any of the signs, contact a urologist right away.
