Frequency:

Monthly

Preparation:

Examination:

  • Take a warm bath or shower.
  • Stand in front of a mirror. Check for any swelling on the scrotum skin.
  • Examine each testicle with both hands. Place the index and middle fingers under the testicle with the thumbs placed on top. Roll the testicle gently between the thumbs and fingers. Don’t be alarmed if one testicle seems slightly larger than the other. That’s normal.
  • Find the epididymis, the soft, tube-like structure behind the testicle that collects and carries sperm. If you are familiar with this structure, you won’t mistake it for a suspicious lump. Cancerous lumps usually are found on the sides of the testicle but can also show up on the front.

Notice Something? Here’s What To Do Next:

  • If you spot any abnormalities consider them “red flags”. They do not mean you have cancer. However, consult your medical team for a professional evaluation.
