Check your testicles just after you've had a bath or shower, when the muscles in the scrotum are relaxed, making it easier for you to feel any lumps, growths or tenderness. Stand in front of the mirror. Look for any swelling on the skin of your scrotum.
Hold your scrotum in your hands and feel the size and weight of each testicle. It is common for one testicle to be slightly larger or hang lower than the other.
Feel each testicle and roll it between your thumb and finger. It should feel smooth. It's normal to feel a soft, tender tube towards the back of each testicle. You shouldn't feel any pain when checking your testicles.
When you or someone you love is diagnosed with cancer, it’s hard to know what to expect. In the early days after diagnosis, your main focus might be learning about the cancer and working with your healthcare team to come up with a treatment plan. But medical issues are only one part of living with cancer.
We firmly believe in involving the community in the cause that is dear to us. What a great way to channel efforts and energy for the well being of your community and of groups with specific needs. This also provides young men who are in remission, or their loved ones, an opportunity to fight cancer and to gain some therapeutic comfort. Testicular Cancer Canada choses to be inclusive and seeks to welcome and benefit from all those who recognize and are interested in this cause. There are many ways to show your support.
