testicular cancer is most common in men between the ages of 15 and 34. This is a young man's disease, so once you hit 15, start checking your balls. Once a month is good enough.
Alright, so let's prepare your testicles for inspection. The best time to do an examination of your testicles is right after a hot shower or bath. The warmness of the water will make your testicles drop, making it easier to inspect for any abnormalities.
First off, get familiar with your two balls. It is normal if one of your testicles is slightly bigger than the other. In addition, the left may hang slightly lower than the right testicle. This is fine as well.
Using both hands, start examining one of the testicles. Gently roll your fingers with slight pressure. Roll your testicle between your fingers, using slight pressure.
The epididymis, which is a rope-like tube located on the top of each testicleYour two testicles should feel smooth and firm. While inspecting your testicles, you may feel the epididymis, which is a rope-like tube located on the top of each testicle. You should feel a lump, and this is normal.
While carefully inspecting your testicles, feel for any abnormal lumps, masses or nodules around your testicles. Lumps vary in size but are around the size of a grain of rice or pea. The lumps are relatively painless.
If you notice an abnormal lump around your testicle(s), see a doctor. Any swelling, change of color, or lumps on the testicle should be inspected by a doctor right away.
Other signs of testicular cancer can include aching in the groin, enlargement/shrinking of testicles, fluid in the scrotum, pain in the testicle, etc.
