Testicular Cancer Self-Exams

Testicular cancer is the most common type of cancer in men aged 15-35, which is why it’s important to touch yourself at least once a month.

When testicular cancer is found early, the 5-year survival rate is 99%.

Self-exams aren’t just about looking for cancer. They’re more about getting to know your body really well so that if anything changes, you notice sooner rather than later.

Besides, you probably touch your balls more than once a month anyways. The health perks are just an added benefit.

Start after puberty!

STEP 1

Take a warm bath or shower. Things are about to get steamy…like a handful of balls steamy.

STEP 2

Stand naked in front of a mirror. Move your penis out of the way so you can easily see your balls. It’s all about them today.

STEP 3

Look at one testicle at a time by gently rolling it between your thumbs and fingers. Then switch to the other testicle.

You’re looking for…

If you notice any of the following, make an appointment with a doctor.

  • Swelling
  • Hard lumps
  • Smooth rounded bumps
  • Changes in size, shape, or consistency of the testicle
