Fact: Self-Exams May Be Helpful for Early Detection

While there is no recommended screening test for testicular cancer, some doctors recommend regular self-exams. According to the American Urological Association, the best time for guys to do a self-exam is after a bath or shower when the skin of the scrotum is relaxed. While standing, your guy should look for swelling or other changes in appearance and feel each testicle by rolling them between the thumb and fingers of both hands to detect lumps. It something feels abnormal, call your doctor.
