MEN - examine yourselves!

 

We talk a lot about the importance about self- examination of breasts in women and yet, much less is spoken about the importance of self-examination of the testicles in men… why is that? Did you know that testicular cancer is the commonest cancer in men aged 15-35 years of age?

 

By knowing what is ‘normal’ for YOU, will help to notice a change much earlier and seek help. The best time to do this is in the shower.

 

To quickly learn how to do a testicular examination in less than a  minute and the symptoms to look for, please follow this link.  

 

THREE EASY STEPS:

 

  1. Examine yourself in the shower once a month
  2. Examine one testicle at a time
  3. Hold the testicles between your thumbs and fingers of both hands and roll gently between your fingers

 

IF YOU NOTICE:

  1. Any hard lumps
  2. Changes in size/shape/ consistency  of the testicles or testicular sac - see your GP.
