Testicular Cancer Check
Men between the ages of 15 and 35 can increase their chances of finding testicular cancer early by performing monthly testicular self-examination (TSE).
Ideally, TSE should be performed after a warm bath or shower. The heat causes the scrotal skin to relax, making it easier to feel anything unusual on the testicle.
You can check your testicles after a warm-up as described in the penis workouts.
Examining Your Testicles
Examine each testicle gently with both hands. The index and middle fingers should be placed underneath the testicle with the thumbs placed on top. Roll the testicle gently between the thumbs and fingers. You should not feel any pain while performing this exam. One testicle may be slightly larger than the other. This is normal.
The epididymis is a cord-like structure on the top and back of the testicles that stores and transports sperm. Do not confuse the epididymis with an abnormal lump. Cancerous lumps are generally found on the sides of the testicles however they can show up on the front too.
Checking The Testicles For Lumps
Feel for any abnormal lumps - about the size of a pea - on the front or side of the testicle. These lumps are usually painless.
If you do find a lump, contact your doctor right away. The lump may be due to an infection, and a doctor can decide the proper treatment.
If the lump is not an infection, it is possible that it may be cancerous and could spread without treatment. Note that free floating lumps in the scrotum that are not directly attached to a testicle are usually not forms of testicular cancer. However, when in doubt make sure to contact a physician!
If you do find a lump, don't panic. Testicular cancer is highly curable, especially when detected and treated early.
Other Signs Of Testicular Cancer
- Any enlargement of a testicle.
- A loss of size in one of the testicles.
- A heavy feeling in the scrotum.
- An aching sensation in the lower abdomen or in the groin.
- A sudden collection of fluid in the scrotum.
- Pain or discomfort in a testicle or in the scrotum.
- Enlargement or tenderness of the breasts.
Get Regular Health Checkups
While routine TSE is important, it cannot substitute for a doctor's examination. Your doctor should examine your testicles when you have a physical examination. You can also ask your doctor to check the way you do TSE.
It's important not to let fear or embarrassment keep you from checking yourself on a regular basis, or contacting the doctor if you notice anything unusual.
Remember, if caught early chances of survival are great. It's your life your dealing with, don't let embarrassment or shyness stop you checking. Make sure that you have regular checks.
